Can you be successful with tap water?
My city tap comes out very alkaline, 8.4 plus...
I filter with carbon to remove and or reduce the chlorines and chloramines but I can not afford a high volume ro unit nor do I like how much water they waste.
I feel like the high mineral content of my water is causing the bulk of my gardening troubles.
Is there a cost effective way to use my tap between fertilizing and not create micro nutrient lock ups etc...
Ultimately I am going to catch rain water and use that but that is out of reach for me right now.
Any advice on using hard tap water successfully would be appreciated
