Perth hasn't much water and what they do have from natural sources isn't so great. Perth is so dry they've had to put in a desalination plant to convert seawater. I'd think this would be a boon to Perth indoor growers as desal water is so rigorously quality controlled.

Learning How To Roll
hey guys... i've just gone through all this myself just recently...
i'm running a drip hydro system, and for my first run with it i used regular tap water... it was a mistake for me. i live in southern california, and the issue i was running into was not so much the ph count but the ppm. there's a lot of junk in tap water. my water was coming out to 360 ppm. i initially bought a britta jug system, but that has an active carbon filter and it only took the ppm down to 240. I finally bought a RO system from costco, and i love it. my water comes out at 40 ppm exactly everytime and it tastes great for me!! i highly recommend it! At costco it was cheap, got mine for 160 plus tax. good luck!! roll it up and burn it up!!
I could see a real advantage for RO in a drip system or any other sort that has small sprayer apertures. Anything that reduces mineral content that much would reduce clogging probs.
