Well, I dug around their website and found references to adding minerals to regulate the pH, but nothing as to hardness. You should contact them directly and ask about GH and KH. Buying a test kit just to check this seems a waste of money when it is public info. You pet store might test it too; if they do, get the numbers so we know exactly what we're dealing with.
This is only a guess, but if they are increasing the pH it would seem to suggest that the water may be soft rather than hard. My water is like that, near-zero hardness so they add some ash or something to increase the pH to 7 or 7.2 because acidic pH tends to corrode pipes, water tanks, appliances, etc. Of xcourse, I suppose they mioght add something to lower the pH, but this seems highly unlikely.
