    I used the customer enquiry facility on the Water Corp website. The tables in the annual reports don't provide the values for calcium, magnesium, etc.

    I sent an old report in to let them know what I was looking for.

    I have attached the current report for my area as an example.

    Hi Stefan

    I tried for years to get a meaning-full water report out of wawa; they will give you the mins and max and state its within spec. The specific problem in Mandurah is the waters a ‘shandy’ of de-sal bore and dam so its a constant moving target to try and define what the chemical composition is, I went RO and never regretted a second, you don't need a Ph meter use Brun Water, I hit the numbers every time….

    finally, I got a water report :)

    I will add for the next 36l weissbier batch (46% pilsener and 54% wheat)

    CaSO4 5g
    CaCl2 7g
    MgSO4 6g
    Lactic Acid 6ml

    I hope this will improve my weissbier :)

    cheers
    Stefan

    Thats quite a bit different to the last one I got, see attached, but I'm assured by people who know our (Mandurah) water is chemically all over the place like a mad woman *ing..
    I've been talking to a few plumbers as we've been thro' 3 very expensive water systems in the last 15 years. Apparently they are starting to use virtuous enamel again as its lasting longer than the SS!! since the kwinana de-sal plant kicked in! (go RO++, your Beer will Love you for it)

    I throw in a Campden tablet to get rid of the chlorine. One tablet will do 75 litres.

    Check out eBay, just purchased a 3 stage RO filter wall mounted for $129. I don’t think you need to test RO water as it comes out basically mineral and chlorine free and is regarded as a blank canvas.

    Looks ok, I believe a 3 stage is what you want as any thing more than 3 stage has an alkaliser which raises the ph to give you a better drinking quality water. Follow these instructions for basic water chemistry. IMG_1524976672.792847.jpg

    I asked WC for a water test report representative of Duncraig, thinking I would receive Whitfords, and I received Yokine. Here it is.

    It's amazing how variable the water is comparing Whitfords and Yokine in the annual report

    Hi HaveFun have you had any luck finding any more upto date results for Mandurah? I have tried water corp but they are not very helpful and can only supply me with results that are old.
