Can I Drink Soften Water

Artificially softened water is not necessarily bad for you. People on low-sodium diets are sometimes told to avoid artificially softened water because the softening process replaces calcium ions with sodium ions, but that doesn't mean it is "salty", and a pint of softened water might contain less sodium than a slice of bread. (Depending on your water hardness) If an ultra-low-sodium diet is essential, medically (such as for heart conditions), then you can use potassium chloride to regenerate the ion-exchange resin beads instead of sodium chloride - although potassium can cause its own problems and should be avoided by people with kidney problems or diabetes.
