Hmm I always thought I wasn't going to post my Ward Labs Report but I think I have a fairly safe and easy question! It would seem that most of my mineral concentrations are low so I was just going to treat my water as the baseline outlined in the primer does anyone see anything wrong with this or should I dilute with any RO water?

Ph 7.8

Sodium, Na 11
Potassium, k <1
Calcium, Ca 5
Magnesium, Mg 2
Total Hardness, CaCO3 21
Nitrate, NOc-N <0.1
Sulfate, SO4-S <1
Chloride, Cl 5
Carbonate, CO3 <1
Bicarbonate, HCO3 46
Total Alkalinity, CaCO3 38

Your water is very soft, pretty typical of PNW AFAIK. After dechlorinating, you can treat it almost like RO.
