Default Water Purifier and my planted aquariums

My parents bought a water purifying system today and I wasnt around to tell the salesman to get out My question is, will a water purifier totally screw with me, my plants and my fish? If so, is there anything I can do to make my conditions normal? It is to be linked directly into our main line, so the purified water will flow from every sink. No more well water for me

Thanks

Otis

What kind of water purifier is it? How does it work? I have a paper filter on my well water, but only to catch sand and debris which I unfortunately have. If it is a paper filter, it won't do much. If it is carbon, then you might just have to up your ferts a bit. If it adds chemicals, well then I don't know...

It is a purifier called RainSoft. I think it uses some kind of salts to clear the water? Is that considered a chemical? Also, he said it would remove stuff like magnesium and it would be neutral ph.

Thanks

Hmm...maybe you can get the model number or something off the unit itself and look online to see what type of filtering it actually does. Either that or call the company who installed it and ask them for specifics.

There should be a plumbing line before the purifer that isn't filtered. Like the line that goes to a garden hose. It wouldn't be heated though. If not you or a plumber could put one in.
