@toored,
any form of a CA Mg Carbonate. Marble is ok, I use Dolomite because its not as soluble as calcite or limestone or marble. It lasts for a good 6 months on a 100 gal tank. (We only have 2 people in the houe full-time and occasional visitations from the younger.)
We run a fairly large stock farm and keep the water to the fields on a water level seris of faucet controllers. (We will use about 10 gal a day pwr each sheep n maybe 25 gpd per steer. We MUST have water that is copper free-because copper causes anemia in the sheep (not the cattle though).

Our well can produce about 40 gpm with about 10 ft of drawdown (Its a great yield). We are, hoqever, in a metamorphic rock belt made up of micaceous layers so its fairly acidic naturally (Itll buffer itself on anything you have that is metal, so if its a new house I hope you put in PVC pipes for water, in the house)

You should find out your wells yield because if its low you probably have metals in solution s your hardness and TDS.

Our pH was 5.5 with copper and with a 100 lb CaMgCO3 "kibble size" charge AND a GAC filter and a tubular final" final polish" filter , we have great water.

@toored,
Hey there, you can use calcite neutralizer, also along with that you can use calcite & corosex blend neutralizer, upflow neutralizer, soda ash feed pump injection system.

Soda or natri hydroxit take PH increasing so you can use soda or natri hydroxit to increase PH

Soda will be good to increase ph of water.
