Do water softeners reduce tds


Recommended Posts

Water softeners replace magnesium and calcium ions in your water with sodium ions. RCS need the calcium in the water for their skeletons. You can get test strips for GH (general hardness) and KH (carbonate hardness) to figure out if your water will be sufficient for cherry shrimp, or whether you'll need to supplement it.
