yes, bwg is correct that the softener is the cause of the disparate GH and KH readings, I would just reword it a bit to "the water softener is the cause of your low GH" reading - for the reason mentioned (Ca and Mg replaced with Na), the source water likely has similar GH and KH numbers, the softener lowers the GH without affecting the KH
