Yes! The spring was still too high pH wise and alkalinity wise. The distilled is a bit below where it should be on both. So I figured i'd try it and see if they meet in the middle.
With the spring water mixed in i'd think that he'd still get the minerals and such.
Testing it again in the morning after it sits overnight in a larger quantity (about half a gallon this time). I just tested it in a small bowl that I used to take samples into the store.
May still mix a sample of tap water and distilled and see if I get the same results.
But im finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
