So filling in some blanks here, I assume you mean water to mix into syrup? if you are concerned, most homes have a way to get water ahead of the softener. Even some of the outside hose connections are pre softened. I would be concerned with the city water that is chlorinated. Not sure on that one , others can offer input. I have not fed in a long time so do not have empirical evidence.
