After years of buying distilled water and collecting rainwater, I started thinking about a potential endless supply of free water 1000 ft from my front door. Lake Erie. I've had 2 test done on the water and both had about the same results. The test I've done couldn't give me excact numbers but here are the results.
Both test showed very low nitrates, and calcuim was non detectiable. The only difference in the two tests were the ph. levels. The first was 6.5 and the second was an 8.
I haven't gotten a mineral content yet, but with the amount of water that Lake Erie is I would think that it would be very diluted.
My question is do you guys think that this would be a good source of water? Do you know of any reasons I should of wary of trying it?
