My water at the house is running about 320 ppm. And I was deffinitly going to use some store bought gallons for earlier on in my grow. In your opinion do u believe 320 should be just fine as the grow goes on or is that too bad?

You "should" be good to go provided what makes up that 320 is not something bad. Good idea to check your local water supply companies info. That is public info if you're on city water.

If you are on a well I'd use at least an RO with a PPM that high.

i always grew with 240 ppm up to 260 with no problems. i would give 320 a try, it's normally mostly calcium and magnesium in the water, these actually are food for the plants

I would have the water tested to see just what and how much that is in the water. If that is mostly calcium, it could cause you issues depending on the grow method you use. If it is chlorine or chloramine, it could cause you issues in other ways. I would have that checked before doing anything else.
