Hey guys and gals quick question. Moving next week into house with water softener never used one for filling fish tank are the any concerns i should have? Thanks Dan
am not the best at answering this but here i go, it will depend on what kind of salt they use to soften the water. they normally use two type of salts sodium chloride (salt) or potassium chloride, i think you will be much better using potassium chloride for plants and fish, but am not 100% sure.Hey guys and gals quick question.

Purchasing this property in 1986 it included a whole house Kinetico salt regen water softener (not a cheap system). That system was upgraded in 2006. Never had fish that didn't come from a store here until I started using an alternate source for water and then adding the RO system I now use. Fish now spawn constantly in my systems and rather than store bought fish I'm selling fish and mulching tank trimmings.I've lived in this house for 17 years, and kept multiple tanks the whole time. I have a well system with water softner. I've literally had fish live in this water for years before trading them off (fresh, brackish AND saltwater reefs). Blanket statements that water softners are not good for fish are simply not true.
