Will the use of Campden tablets (Potassium Metabisulfite) change the profile at all?

I know that the only source of the water I use comes from an artesian well between Binghamton NY.and Silver Lake  Pa.the ph does not change and it is neutral for using for spirits and wine also-ran beer and have been very satisfied for years

Can't find my Ward Labs Report, but this was my numbers in 2020 for Braintree, Mass that I plugged in BeerSmith:

pH  7.6
Ca  15.6
Mg   4.0
Na   99.0
SO4   9.0
Cl     165.0
HCO3  30.0

Alkalinity 25
Effective Hardness 13
Residual Alkalinity 11

TDS was something like 350.   

Needless to say that due to sodium & chloride numbers, I use distilled water instead of tap.
