Water treatment at it simplest

(That's water to the rest of us!) Beer is about 95% water, so if you want to discuss water treatment, filtering etc this is the place to do it!

I'm in a very hard water area. I have a £35 reverse osmosis filter and prep RO water the day before.
Water treatment is stopping me going all grain - I live in a hard water area. Can you link to the RO filter you have? Does it connect to a tap or a hose?
[-X never let water treatment stop you going all grain.

260 Alkalinity here :wink: the water can be used to brew most beers I want to drink.

Edit with acid treatment.

Same as barneey here. It's perfectly treatable unless you want to make absolutely authentic Czech Pils (and even then you can get close enough that most people wouldn't know the difference).
Ingredients: Water, Barley, Hops, Yeast, Seaweed, Blood, Sweat, The swim bladder of a sturgeon, My enemies tears, Scenes of mild peril, An otter's handbag and Riboflavin.
