I remeasured the PH and TDS levels of my incoming tap water and again after
being filtered.

Before filtering After Charcoal and RO Filtering

TDS: 515 PPM 31 PPM
PH: 7.7 7.1

It looks like 7 stage RO filtering made the water move towards PH neutral
from being on the basic side. A reading of 7 would be considered perfect
neutral so I am happy with a PH reading of 7.1. I would rather have it lean
towards basic than acidic which is the case here. On the other hand, the TDS
level of the incoming tap water exceeds EPA standards! I wouldn't dare drink
the tap water here. Might end up with a case of kidney stones!

I don't think meteorites would be happy with the tap water here. I will do
chemical testing in a few weeks. I hope there is no chloramine in our system
as is the case in California.

Kind Regards,
