hi Anthony

good post mate, sadly, not a lot of ppl seem interested in it. but when i read between the lines on a lot of questions, i'm of the opinion a lot of ppl don't own test kits.

so for my results

suburb; St Marys [outer west syd]

source; warragamba dam via prospect resivoir

results; PH 7.5

GH 4

KH 4

comment; sydney water[supply co.] will give us a detailed analysis as to a wide range of paremeters. all said to be within acceptable limits.

as a rule, not a bad drop. but during a wet spell, i can definatley notice an increase in the chlorine odour. also noticed a rise in the ph in the last 6/8mths.

cheers; Colin
