Well water is fine.

Your well water is fine, you may need to adjust the Acid you mix, more or less depending on the hardness of your water. 1.5-2.0 is what your looking for to use as a pickle.

Also before dumping any pickle use baking soda, to neutrailze back the the normal pH. Buy neutralizing this brings any acid back to its base elements. JOhn C

better results since the addition of a softner.Went to Sears and bought the least expensive model they had.I seem to get a more even tan now with better overall quality.I had very hard water with alot of iron.I wouldn't think of tanning without the softner now.Just my experience with this as you may not get the same result.
