I would think you need to take into consideration the amount of sodium that's in the water you're drinking.
I really don't know.... anyway I buy all my water... can't stand the water around here.
Here's a bump

It does increase sodium intake, but is it enough to make you retain water? I dunno.
"Softening of water with a common sodiumbased ion exchange water softener does increase the sodium content in the water. Therefore, if you have health concerns about your sodium intake, consult your physician. It is important to note that many of these water softeners have a by-pass feature that will allow you to bypass the cold water in the kitchen. This will enable you to use unsoftened water for drinking and cooking."
