where i live its very hard water, about 21 GH, so i use R/O the best i found, i used peat for a while, but R/O more practical for water changes and more efficient.
for Peat, if your tap water is very hard, it wont affect it much, or using a large quantities, but you have to tolerate the tea color.
i recommend R/O water, and beware of ion exchanger, that produces sodium instead of calcium, with affect the tank as a whole.
