    All are water comes from fresh supplies from reservoirs and but isn?t affected by rain water topping them up . There should be a very good active dosing and monitoring system in place at the clean water pumping station keeping this in check. These places are actually few a far between and keep very very secure as it would be possible to poison the whole of the north west by getting into these places. The reservoirs are used as back pressure to the station as well as collection . Uu have hundreds of sites but 99.9% are water treatment works and not clean water. Most of the rain water from our streets roads etc etc end up in the water treatment works in huge storm tanks. Reservoirs are Generally topped up from rivers and the hills.

    Providing the water you receive is in the range of values set, the water is fine and under control. Some of the ranges of what is accepted are very wide.

    There would be no benefit for water companies to closely control our water, providing it's safe.

    they need to closely control our water and monitor it too make sure it?s safe bro. Ya would be amazed at how much work and analysing goes into providing us a glass of water. The water companies have to keep samples for years just to prove it was safe . Most water companies are having massive upgrades after the incident that made most of Preston and Blackpool?s drinking water unsafe last year. They are installing massive uv water filter lights to kill the bacteria that can be present if something gets into the supply like it dead . I believe it was one dead rodent that caused them so much trouble. I can only speak for uu , Thames water , Welsh water and the seven Trent water companies tho

    Very true mate I glad they do. I was meaning more along the lines of they don't alter the chemical composition or the pH to keep a tight control on that. I appreciate they keep it safe primarily

    This brew tastes a bit shitty now I think of it

    I?ve worked on and off water treatment works for years and years as a subcontractor and the places amazing me as much as they stink . From them generating more electricity than they need to run the station and pumping it back into the grid just from our shite . It surprised me how much heavy metals they pull out of our dirty water with centrifuges and what they do with the waste they cannot treat . It would amaze you where it ends up . Then there?s the clean water sites which are kept under lock and key , you need a chaperone at all times making sure you do not contaminate the supply.

    In the US we can poison people and after a bunch of folks die, someone will cry for a few days on the news, then eventually the government will spend millions on a clean up. This is as opposed to making the people responsible pay.

    My water is 480 us/cm. R/O for me for sure.
    Here's what my stuff looks like out of the dishwasher before I rinse with r/o water and hand dry.

    My last house had brown water. My r/o filter is a great investment. It was only $70 and takes me to 0 us/cm.

    How much water do r/o filters waste? I heard it's as much as 25% is lost

    I recommend you make a correct calibration is very very important

    Mines 4 stage 100 gallon per day. Probably wastes that much. I'm unconcerned about the waste as I'm in midwest US. Water is all over here.

    Also regarding calibration, the obvious mineral buildup on my sinks, dishes and toilets speaks for itself. I started my first grow with tap water. I was having to use 20ml pH down every day. Lots of limestone in the area. High levels of that causing my pH problems and goodness knows what sort of potential health effects.
