The numbers need units in order to be useful.

Additionally, TDS, alkalinity, and sulfur compounds will affect your choices.

Sorry about that.

Iron (total Fe): 6.16 mg/L
Hardness (as CaCO3): 264 mg/L
Alkalinity (CaCO3): 361 mg/L
TDS: 349 mg/L
Sulfate (SO4): Sulfur: Manganese: 31.9 ug/L
Chloride: 1.20 mg/L

Anything else? most of the other results are metals (mostly below detection limits)
