The water inmy part of Brussels taste bad. So I use Culligan bottled water. I have looked all over the internet for a analysis of it to plug into my software, but have had zero luck.

Anyone have or know where I could find it?

around here, Culigan water is carbon filtered and run through a weak reverse osmosis filter.

I don't think its terribly standardized. Aside from calling a local Culligan facility and digging deeper, you'll likely have to send the water to a lab for analysis.

I would definitely check with the local distributor. They surely have details.

I doubt you have home depots in belguim, but this might be of use to others in the states. I was at home depot a few months ago and by the registers they had free water test kits that you can mail off (postage is even paid) and get a detailed water report. The address it gets sent to was a local address, so i am not sure if all home depots do it or not, but if you are in the Hampton Roads, VA area, then your home depot might do it!
