I figured I would be ok to use house water directly as we have salt softener on it so we would avoid scale etc..

But I read a post that suggested I shouldn't use it?

Is this because of taste or will it cause an issue? Profitec 600 with flow control.

Thanks!
I've used tap water run through a whole house carbon/sediment filter followed by a salt water softener and had no issues for 15ish years. I've tried other water sources, played around with mixes and always found I preferred my tap water.
As far as the machine I almost never descale. The last element I pulled had zero deposits.
