I'm setting up a brand new freshwater tank, there's no stock in it yet, just the substrate, treated tap water, with a heater and filter. When I check the Ph levels it measures in high danger zone.

Do you have exact measurements? The pH being dangerously high would have to mean its relative to a type of fish, like keeping an angelfish in a pH of 8.3.

I don't have an exact measurement if I took a sample to petsmart or pet supermarket can they give me a number? They offer me free water checks all the time.
