Who are these people that add salt to their freshwater tanks on a regular basis? Freshwater fish (unless brackish) do not like salt. Freshwater plants do not like salt. What benefits would this provide? The only times I hear people add salt to their freshwater tanks is as medication to combat stuff like parasites.

Having said that I have no idea about mechanically softened water / if it could be harmful. Out of curiosity are you looking to soften your water in the first place?
