Is it safe to use softened water?

Where I live we have rather hard water and my house utilizes a water softener system. I am new to growing and don’t know if it is safe to use with the whole salt factor. I currently use RO water, is tap water better?

Btw, love the DGC and try to catch every show since I discovered you guys about 2 months ago. Just got my order of Recharge and Grow Dots to do a run with, super stoked!

    Softened water has way too much sodium and will cause serious problems. I would use the tap water if it’s under 200 ppm.

      What if tap water is 280? 😂 It is what it is

        280 ppm is probably fine.

    You can buy a filter hose attachment and that might bring your ppm down below 200. They’re usually only about 30 bucks and last for about 5000 gallons or so I think.
