"I just got my hardness test kit, & after checking to make sure the regeants had plenty of time before they expire, I tested dKH 11, &, having to do it twice because it went off the chart, dGH 16, which would be 285.6ppm. So, I will be using nothing but rainwater & R/O water, once I get the thing cycled in. I'll have to buy the R/O water from Mr. Aquarium until I can save enough for an R/O unit. Man this sucks! This continuous drought we've been in has just ruined Lubbock water --- I remember when it was soft water back in the 70s & 80s!" --- from 09/11/13 post
Just for the halibut, I checked hardness again; had to do KH twice, cause it is now 6! Down 5 from 11, though GH is now 17, up 1 from 16. Don't know if that means wild swings of KH in the tap, or what. Our water table in Lubbock is far lower than it's ever been & just gets lower by the hour.
