First Triton test

Not sure where to start or why some of these numbers would be high. Any advice is welcome.

Those numbers actually all look okay, within the limits of the testing methodology. I suspect that the zinc level is fine, but if you're worried, some CupriSorb will adsorb zinc. Is there any particular problem that you're trying to solve.

No not at all. That was my first test and just wanted so background to make sure things were not wacky.

The levels that are high are trace elements, which are difficult to quantify in a reasonably low-cost manner. I don't see anything that'd make me worry. You could dose some strontium, if you're interested, but I (and lots of other people) have never found it to have much of an effect. Here's more:

The tests from Triton aren't all that accurate down in the low range.
