Bought some water thought it was RO/DI it has Sodium bicarbonate, Calcium cloride and Magnesium sulfate. None of which sounds like I want to drink it let alone put it in my tank. Calcium is good and Sodium is salt. What about the rest of it? Anybody know what this is?

Well the Sodium Bicarbonate is baking soda, that adjusts your PH levels.

Sodium bicarbonate
basicly is baking soda ,a white soluble compound (NaHCO3)

Calicum Chloride is bassically a drying reagent and boost the Ca in the liq.being used CaCl<sub>2
</sub>Magnesium sulfate

a white anhydrous salt MgSO<sub>4, in a liq. it is used to boost the mag level in it
this form is
</sub>MgSO<sub>4</sub>·7H<sub>2</sub>O
<sub>
</sub><sub>so over all it is a good thing with in the water..
