    Just get a TDS meter on ebay for cheap. That's where I got mine and I love it, never have to wonder if my RO unit is working properly or not.

    A few sentences of this might keep you on bottled water: http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/HAC/pha/oldcity/ocy_p1.html

    That said, I'll use tap water for Neps, but not my Sarrs and brand new VFTs.

    Send me a small sample of your water and I'll be glad to test it for you.

    Can neps take tap water? I just some outside and I'm thinking they will want a lot because of the heat.

    I give my plants, including tap water all the time. If I have no rain water, I'll give them tap. But the TDS of my tap water is in the 20's.
