I'm getting an IG pool put in (SWCG). Dig is imminent (waiting on HOA approval).
I have a water softener which is not on a loop. All of my outside taps are on the softener (I'll be honest I wasn't actually aware of this until today).
I've read conflucting issues that its not great to fill a pool with softened water and can cause issues with the water balance. Anyone have any experience of this?
If its an issue I can see two solutions:
1) Bypass the softener whilst filling the pool
2) Have the pool builder dig down and intercept my water line before the softener. The softener has can external shut off valve which is accessible so I'm assuming this wouldn't be too difficult.
