Bottled Water Chart

Hi all.

I think this might be useful for those who used these bottles of water for aquarium use. The chart was found in my book. I assume they're from UK only after reading Julie's post in one thread about Evian.:)

Volvic
pH: 7
GH: 3
KH: 3

Valvert
pH: 7.2-7.4
GH: 8-9
KH: 7.5-8.5

Evian
pH: 7.2-7.4
GH: 16-17
KH: 16-17

Other bottles written were Hepar, Contrex and Vittel but no data as to hardness and pH are available unfortunately.

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I have found that with my generic bottled water it runs pH 7 right out of the bottle, but drops to 6.6 after exposure to air within a few hours.
