What Byron means is the hardness, alkalinity, pH, etc. from your tap water will /already/ have certain parameters. While you can tweak these a little, and difficulty will vary depending on whether your water is already hard or already soft, it's not recommended and it would be much easier to go with what your water is like naturally.
You'll need to get a water test kit (walmart, your lfs, and some other places have them) if you don't have one. Or maybe you can take a water sample to your fish store and they can check it for you, mine does this.
