My sister lived just south of county line road for years. I'm sure there is a big limestone layer there.
I need to move to an aquifer... real conversation since the wife and I are both self employed.

Wanna move to Lawrenceburg?...
Why?
My beer will taste better. 
Shut the hell up.
Okay babe hahaha

Alkalinity 309

Res. Alkalinity 88

Bicarb 375

Calcium 278

Mag. 82

Total hardness 360

Chloride 50

SO4 81

Sodium 24

Total chlorine 1.79

Free chlorine .87

Chloramine .92

pH 7.5

So this is my tap water as of 2 weeks ago.  I let my water run for 4 mins before gathering a 16oz sample for testing... this is why I struggle with my water.  RO is my cheapest option.  Thoughts?

RO/Distilled all the way.

I'm in Lawrenceburg, and I use RO to make sure I know where I stand each and every time. But we could use more Brewers here for sure, c'mon down

Yes we are. Sorry, shouldve noted that in the original post. Well pumps through a salt water softener.
