Some quick descriptions of the terms:

Alkalinity: 
Directly affects your water and your beer’s pH level. Water with low alkalinity is subject to dramatic pH changes. Know the alkalinity of the water before you brew to determine if you need to adjust pH prior to brewing. Alkalinity coupled with calcium and magnesium hardness can help you estimate the end pH of your beer.

Hardness: 
Calcium: Helps prevent enzymes from denaturing and extends their activity in the mash, promoting clarity, flavor, and stability in the finished beer.
Magnesium: In small amounts Mg is an important yeast nutrient. The better the “yeast ferment”, the cleaner the alcohol produced.

Sulfate:
Control the bitterness level of your finished beer by adjusting sulfates.

Chloride:

Accentuates hop character, helps dry the beer finish. Tastes minerally with high concentrations of sodium, chloride, and bicarbonate.

Sodium:

Acts to improve mouthfeel and sweetness of malt.

pH:
Measure the pH before and during the brewing process since it affects the taste of your brew. Although testing the pH of the water before you brew is important to establish your starting point, it is even more essential to test during the process to ensure you optimize your ingredients. pH test strips and papers work fine for pre-tests, but a digital pH meter is recommended for testing during brewing.
