Your home water softener will kill your plants if you use the water from it.
I know this from personal experience.
If your water doesn't appear to have passed through the softener, first thank God. Your water source might skip the softener, like my home's kitchen sink cold water feed.
Just keep this in mind if you ever decide to get water from another location in your house. Test it first to make sure it isn't softened (low GH, normal KH).
