just got my water profile back today from ward labs. ive known about my alkalinity issue and have been adding lactic acid to drop my ph where i need it.

seems like my sodium is way out of range at 114 . only way to fix this is diluting with ro or distilled water right?

any other issues anyone sees that i should concern myself with and therefore add chemicals? already know calcium is constantly going to be added.
