Tap water soft, but high pH?!
My tap water usually runs about 8.2 to 8.4, so I have always assumed it was very hard. However, I just did a general hardness and carbonate hardness test and they both indicated 50 ppm or less, which is really soft. In fact it is almost as soft as ro which comes in at a little under 20 ppm.
I think going forward I am going to start using my tap since it so soft and just pH adjust it. Ro is much more expensive and wastefull.
Any ideas what would cause my tap to be soft but still have such an alkaline pH?
