It depends what the water softener uses to soften the water. 'Hard' ions are considered the bivalent ones like Mg and Ca and are commonly replaced with Na for the softening effect, and we all know that excess Na is not good for plants. Soft water is generally not demineralized water as one would be inclined to believe (like RO water which is jolly expensive equipment).
