In my area of FL, most of the LFS use hard water; most residents have softeners. I began using the bypassed water after letting it run for about five minutes (or after a shower on Saturday but before laundry). Adding some heated soft water won't matter much. Most research I have seen say that, over time, softened water can prove deficient in certain minerals. For whatever reason, my fish--mostly live-bearers at this point--prefer the hard water. Your milage may vary.
