So what else do you do on a saturday night at 1:30? Isn't that when everyone tests their water? So testing the parameters, everything is coming out where i expected, cal good, mag good, alk low, nitrate 0, phosphate 0. I got to thinking i have never seen anything but 0 on my nitrate (API) and Phosphates (Salifert). So I decided i am going to check my well water just so i can see a different shade of yellow on nitrate and and see some blue on phosphates. Results; 0 and 0. ? So my question after all of that is should i be seeing at least one of these register on my water? My well water I tested was after my softner, not sure if that makes a difference or not. If any other info is needed, I am glad to provide it.
