Personally, I think you will be fine with the nitrate level-its the long term sodium and absent magnesium/calcium that might be a problem....
Don't have a well house. It's newer construction so just a PVC pipe housing sticking out of the ground. Everything else is under the house, there might be a spigot, can't get under there right now because I just had the house painted and the painters painted the access door shut.
Just haven't had the time or inclination to pry it open. I'm pretty sure the spigots on the outside of the house are piped after the filtration systems, but I think I'll test them too just for grins.
So is there something I need to do for the sodium/magnesium/calcium? AQ salt?
Anyway, I'm going to replace a gallon today with spring water and another tomorrow then test and see where we are. I might be able to use a mixture of the two, just dilute things a bit with the spring water. That way I can use my tap water to bring it up to the right temperature.
I'll let you know how things progress.
