diethlyhexyl 1.3 ppb
chlorine .90 ppb
copper .785 ppm
lead 3.5 ppb

There's no usable info there. You need Calcium, Magnesium, Alkalinity/Hardness, Chloride, and Sulfate.

www.wardlab.com. For about 20 dollars, they will send you an analysis of your water with all of the important parameters.

Here is a great thread. Maybe a little confusing at first, but there is a wealth of info in it.
