A full week. This is because of the life cycle of ich.

You added an airstone (or some bubbling device), correct?

Do a partial water change of half the tank. Replacement water at the higher temperature obviously. You can do this daily. The therapeutic effects of a water change cannot be overstated. To avoid stress, don't go cleaning around in the tank, just stick the hose in and siphon out half the water, then siphon in the fresh. Use a water conditioner of course.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Do a Google search of your city/town and "water" or something. Almost every municipality has a website, and the water supply department is certain to be there.

Here is a link to your water quality report; however, it doesn't show the info we need. It says you can call 825-1040 in you have questions. Maybe try that route.
