Ammonia= 0-.25
NitrIte= 0
NitrAte= 0
pH= 7.6-7.8
gh= 125.3
kh= 5

If I remember right that's no different than with the conditioner on. I did run the water for a few minutes to work the old water out of the pipes. Also the hot water tank holds a lot of old water but with the cold water it's being mixed in atleast. Our hot water tank holds 50g so I wasn't going to stand there and wait for 50g to go through. question is should I bother going through the trouble of turning it off and running the water everytime?
According to previous numbers, the GH is less, so it rises a bit through the conditioner.

Does this change anything though? Better for plants or fish?

This was something of a side issue. The algae problem is not going to vary either way as far as the GH being 145 or 125 dGH...but still there is the unanswered question of exactly what this conditioner is doing.
