Over the past few weeks we've both been up to our eyeballs in reading technical agricultural documents about bore water and potential problems with it. We know our bore water has a degree of salinity, but not a lot, but what we don't know yet it what those salts are comprised of. Apparently the salinity of ground water is comprised of a number of salt compounds, such as sodium chloride, magnesium chloride, potassium chloride to name a few, and if one of those in particular has a higher ratio than expected of the total salinity reading, then it can cause problems with some plants. Our total salinity level shouldn't really affect all but the most sensitive plants, particularly if we make sure we don't wet the leaves. On the whole most plants here are okay for now, but there are problems showing up here and there.
