The need for Start Right

I have always used Start Right as a water conditioner when doing water changes. I have a private well that has NO chlorine and was wondering if the water conditioner was necessary. Anyone??? Thanks-

(Very soft water with a ph of 6 and 0 gh and kh)

If you are on a private water system that has no added chlorine or chloramines then there is no reason to treat the water.

Thanks Rex. On the bottle it says "removes chlorine and harmful metals." Did not know what the harmful metals would be or if I had them in the well water. What do you think it is referring to, and would harmful metals not be in private well?? Thanks again-
