To see the complete list of tested compounds for your drinking water please view the Consumer Confidence Report but if you are interested in just the highlights you can stay here. 

 

Fluoride is a compound naturally found in drinking water that is effective in preventing tooth decay.  Some municipalities add fluoride to drinking water either because the concentration is low or fluoride is absent.  Allenton doesn't add any because the water contains an adequate amount at 0.47 mg/L.

Water hardness levels have classification that range from soft to very hard and Allenton falls under "very hard" at 290 mg/L.

1 gpg = 17.118061 mg/L, Allenton Hardness = 290 mg/L

 

To find your grains per gallon you can use the following equation.

X gpg = (290 mg/L) (1/17.118061 mg/L) = 16.941171 gpg => 16.9 gpg
