Thanks Autumn, I just researched what you said and I'm definitely not going to go that way! Not until I have a lotto win
In the meantime, would it be feasible to used the filtered water from out kitchen tap. It's a reasonable quality drinking water system, as follows, would this help to soften water?
When you guys talk about buffers in the water, is that referring to ph up or ph down, and is it ok to rely on that to get your water right? And just use tap water, not filtered? I already use tap water with QuickStart and stress coat when i add water to my existing tank, but that's a smaller tank ..
Here's the filtered water option:
STAGE 1 FILTER - Sediment Polyspun (5 Micron)
Dirt, Sand, Sediment and Organics Removal.
Dense layers of the poly spun filter provide more opportunity to collect and capture contaminants. This adsorbent pre filter can be used for mains water filters or reverse osmosis systems.
STAGE 2 FILTER - Matrikx PB1 (1 Micron)
Lead, chlorine, taste, odour and sediment reduction filter.
1 micron absolute filter for outstanding lead, chlorine, taste and odour reduction. Parasite, turbidity and cyst reduction, including Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma (meets NSF/ANSI Standard 53).
