What's going on with this push for sovereignty [sp?] from our Texas brethren? I don't like the idea of needing a passport to:

They have taverns just for firemen in Texas?

You have reason to be careful TJ, get on Theo's bad side and he'll annihilate you with a quadruple entendre.

Aptly put, JHAP...I am heeding this advice. I think Theo is beyond being impressed by mere mortals, I'll keep chasing his tail since that Wikipedia post on Condello which cannot be equaled...so next best thing is simply not to invoke the wrath of "That Which Lurks Beneath the Water" [okay, JHAP help a brutha out by posting the pic of Theo swimming in pond - please!]

Sorry TJ, normally I'd help you out, but I didn't get to be 51 years old by taunting rocket scientists. Plus I learned my lesson with Brettski (and am still learning it), some people it just doesn't pay to taunt, they have powers beyond mere mortals.

Here's a well test I had done a few years ago. Note how high the alkalinity and hardness are. I can almost walk on the water it's so hard. But the fish do well!

BTW the iron result is too low. Like I said iron needs to be tested on site.

If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

I think I'm one of those people. I've had two people unjustly give me a really hard time and both died shortly after that of natural causes at a fairly young age. I know it was probably just a coincidence but... \:o

On a funny note I told this to a fellow taxidermist on a taxidermy website that had given me a hard time. He emailed me and told me he had just been flooded out and whatever I was doing to cut it out. I jokingly told him I'd take the vodoo doll of him out of the bathtub.

OK, Cecil, I'll buy the buglite. Money is no object. I'm sending a blank check.

I thought that might fish out a response from you fireman...

I have a new test being performed on the well water tomorrow - will post results.

Nitrate+Nitrate Nitrogren - Not Detected
Flouride - .49 mg/l
ph at 22.0 Celsius - 7.8 (slightly alaline but in range with well Water
Turbidity - 1.0 NTU (expect ground water to be low TSS)
Total Dissolved Solids - 483 mg/l (this is the measure of TDS)
Hardness [CaCO3] - 340 mg/l (total calcium and magnesium)
Hardness [CaCO3] - 20 grains/gal(17.1 ppm per Grain)
Electrical Conductivity - 0.754 mmho/cm (probably 754 mhos)
Sulfate [SO4] - 30 mg/l (typical)
Total Calcium - 88 mg/l (multiply by 2.5 to get as CaCO3)
Total Iron - not detected (good)
Total Magnesium - 0.67 mg/l (multiply by 4.12 to get as CacO3)
Total Sodium - 36 mg/ Typical)

This apears to be typical ground water, high in hardness and probably alkalinity. With low sodium, the hardness will likely be associated with alkalinity and your total bicarbonate alakalinity will be approximately equal to hardness as CaCO3.
