Our water is like RO water, 0dKH, 0dGH, tds 13ppm. pH 7 out of the tap. Great for discus and other SA cichlids, but brutal for Tanganyikan's without supplementation.
Wow! Where is your freshwater coming from?

Outside of keeping tropheus, my reef tank and plecos would love that water.

Just our local water supply. Vancouver is rain forest region soft, the rest of our province varies from soft to hard. I think our coastal city neighbours down in Wa and Ore are similar too. My reefer buddies still run their water through RO units for their corals and fish for pure water, they just don't have to change the membranes as much.

PH is not hardness.

Right. If you are looking at a Quality of the drinking water report.

I'm loooking for actual Testing of the Gh (General hardness) and Kh (Carbonate/ Bicarbonate Hardness) of TX Water as everyone claims it to be so "hard"... In Either Clark Scale (ppm's) or degrees of Hardness (dh) of the Clark scale (1 Dh = 17.9ppm Clark Scale)...

Like my tap is 6gh/ 8-9Kh (Degrees of Hardness) and times both of those figures by 17.9 to get the Clark Scale ppm Measurement.

I'm not seeing much of a result from people actually testing the water itself that comes from the tap...

I test it constantly.

I didn't take it as that at all. I like the Humor!

As long as people don't take offense to it. It seems typically used as a way to address silly misconceptions or misunderstandings. Which I have learned not to take offense to myself.
