Get your own test kit. API/Seachem liquid test kits are preferable.
Test your water straight out of the tap.
Then put a sample in a cup/bucket and let it sit for 24 hours and then test it.
Take a second sample and aerate it for 24 hours (airstone in the bucket) and test that again.
With this method you will know exactly what your water does over time and what its true PH is.
