    Guys, my water company states:


    "Drinking water also contains sodium. While the contribution of drinking water to dietary sodium intake is usually very low, persons on a very low sodium diet should be aware that Unitywater’s drinking water typically contains between 20 and 50 milligrams (0.02 to 0.05 grams) of sodium per litre of water. "


    This is 20-50ppm isn't it?


    Seems high?

    Yep, 20-50 ppm. Mine comes with 29ppm. Not sure if that's s problem, but there are some things I have that I just can't get to grow quite right -- Alternathera Reineckii, I'm looking at YOU!

    I'm not sure if this range is good or bad. KH and other salts, ferts etc come into play.
