Re: U.S. water ph map
Ummm. . . No. If you have a pH of 7 it is neutral. If your pH is above 7, it is alkaline. If your pH is below 7, it is acidic. Hardness has to do with buffering capacity.

If you have a ballroom with a bunch of people dancing, it is not going to do much, unless you get a bunch of them (high hardness, you have to add lots of acid).
Does that make sense?
If you think anything organic is good for you, go drink some organic solvents.
