Anyone know...

Post by Flute on Thu Mar 22, 2012 1:27 am

The pH and water hardness in the Cheshire area? Bryn and I are moving to the Northwich/ Knutsford area in about 3 weeks, and I've refused to go without me tanks Razz

I don't have a testing kit at the moment (well I do, but I'm fantastic at smashing the test tubes), and google has decided it doesn't want to tell me. I'm just trying to do a little bit of research before I lug them all over there, so I know how long to acclimatise them, if I need to take tank water, etc.

I don't know if we have any members in this area, but I thought it'd be worth an ask anyway Smile Thanks to anyone who knows or has a rough idea Smile

That is one handy site to know about Very Happy *saved*
Cheers Star. Looks like it'll be very soft water with a pH of around 7ish, which is better than what we have were I am now.

I was just worried that the pH would be above 8, because I don't think Bryn would appreciate me spending loads on ways to try and lower it XD
