the GH is less then one degree

the KH is 13

my pH looks to be about 9.0 or little higher

Nitrite <0.3ppm

and there is no ammonia.

I don't have a test to measure for anything else, but how does that look.

can I use that in my tank to fill it.

I have a 55 gallon tank and don't wana fill it with buckets out of my sink so I want to just hook up a hose to my well water and run it through my window Laughing

Wait... do you use your well water for tap water? That's what I do... Confused
As far as your tap water- man that's CRAZY water. Really alkaline and soft? That's pretty rare. I'm not sure I'd use that water in a tank...
Your well water looks fine.
Good luck,
Liszie
