My spa's manual says to bypass my home's water softener when filling the tub, so I do.
I use bromine for sanitation per the Sticky here.
My wife doesn't use our spa because she says it dries out her skin.
I've been reading that salty pool/spa water feels better on the skin. My shower's water does feel better when softened. So I'm considering adding pool salt, or at least not bypassing my water softener, the next time if fill my tub.
I'd still use bromine for sanitation.
What are the risks of putting soft/salt water in my tub and would the benefits of having 2000ppm(?) salt, and my wife , in my water outweigh the risks to the equipment?
