... water at 175°F(79.4°C) indicated that the cold water was very aggressive, especially in the presence of oxygen. Cold water appeared to be similarly aggressive, with a slight tendency to scale, since the Langelier Saturation Index (LSI) was slightly greater than zero. Water quality test results from...
