chloride level

I was about to have a Buderus SST stainless steel DHW intalled which use 316 SS and 304 SS on the HX.  The mannual said not to exceed 80 ppm of chloride.  I had Analytical Balance test my water for chloride level since my town in Randolph, MA are not required to test for chloride, the result is 91mg/l which is 91 ppm.  What do you think I should do?

    Bradford White RTV series

    Or a Bradford White RTV Stainless steel tank made out of 444 stainless steel which is apparently nearly immune to chloride attack ( much better than 300 series stainless steels).

    thanks

    Thank for the feedback.  I had considered Bradford White RTV SS.  My boiler is going to be Buderus G125 with logamatic, any problem using a different brand indirect.

    just make sure....

    the probe for the logamatic can fit in the aquastat port.
