I know that there have been a thousand of these, but here is mine
I believe that my water is already pretty soft, but cannot get info about if is temporary or permanent hardness. Here is the info I have been able to get off of the internet so far.
Water hardness varies from 35 to 110 mg/L averaging about 80 mg/L (4.68 grains/g) annually. PH varies from 7.5 to 8.0. Chloride has averaged about 6 mg/L over the previous 10-year period.
Chlorine levels entering the distribution system ranged from 0.81 to 1.83 mg/L. Most of the iron and manganese is removed – trace amounts remain. Additional fluoride is added to the water for dental health benefits to a target level of 1.10 mg/L.
Detected cotaminents as follows in ppm
From what I can determine, the water is fairly soft, acidic, and chlorinated.
I treat with campden for chorine, and ph5.2 for mash. I sometimes use gypsum for ales. I would like to know if it temporary or permanent hardness however.
