    Averages for Silvan reservoir, from a number of sources a few years back as I couldn’t find it all in one place. It’s good, but has low mineral content

    pH: 7.3
    Calcium (Ca): 3.9 ppm
    Magnesium (Mg): 1.2 ppm
    Sodium (Na): 4.5 ppm
    Sulfate (SO4): 0.9 ppm
    Chloride (Cl): 7.3 ppm
    Bicarbonate (HCO3): 13.0 ppm

    These are the settings I now use in Doncaster (Silvan) in Brewfather. Not heavily tested.

    Melbourne water generally do updates on the mineral content, when I say regular it may be bi annually, I was worried about mine as its coming from Cardinia which comes from Sugar loaf which comes from the de-sal plant. I would take megs8888 post and just use that as a datum.
