    Scot - actually, a lot of water is imported into California's supply from Oregon. The reason the demarcation is so apparent is because Oregon's municipal supplies come from rain- and glacier-fed reservoirs, whereas California has to buy from many sources, including aquifers under desert and farmland where the ground water isn't so pristine. At the northern border, the rainwater is all the same no matter what side you're on, but the same can't be said for what's coming out of the taps.

    Wow thanks guys for the info and Scottychaos the first map that you showed me i am in the 0-60 (purple zone) and the second map well it's hard to tell i think i am in between very hard water and the slightly hard water i think more in the slightly hard water zone but could be either one so does anyone think i should try it on a spare plant?

    You're not getting it. TEST the water. Boil it all away (all) if you have to.

    You can get a TDS meter for $17 that will do fine at affordablewater.us Such an instument is very useful. I use it to check water trays and bogs for too many minerals besides testing my RO water.
