Ok, so I downloaded a water report from my city website because I wanted to compare it other brewing waters, and just see where I stood. But, when I looked at it, I relized I couldn't read greek!

He's a link to my water profile.
http://www.lafayette.in.gov/egov/docs/1203957789_587219.pdf

I'm tring to fill in the Promash water profile including:
Ca
Mg
Na
So4
Cl
HCO3 (Carbonates?)

I'm most confused about what to put for Ca and HCO3. My report has someting for calcium carbonate, but isn't that two categories? Ca and Carbonate?

If anybody is good at this stuff, could you help me out? Chemistry class ended a long time ago for me! Thanks.

Ok, I did some more research and I think I figured some of it out. Here's what I got. Somebody double check me.

Bicarbonate HCO3 : 244 mg/l
Chloride (Cl) : 47 mg/l
Sulfate (SO4) : 57 mg/l

The Chloride and Sulfate are right off the water report. The bicarbonate is from the conversion button on the water profile entry window in promash. I also verifyed my figure by using a conversion from the link below with Alkilinity as a starting point.

But, I still can't figure out how to interpret for Calcium, Magnesium, and Sodium.

Anybody know?


I also don't know how the following items on my water profile relate. It seems like there's more than one number for the same thing.

Calcium Carbonate
Calcium Hardness
Total hardness

Thanks
