is it alright for my dog to be in my softned water everyday?

we have REALLY REALLY REALLY bad water and when I fill their pool up it turns rusty red within an hour(like you can't even see the bottom which is only maybe 5 inches deep) but if I fill it with the water softner water it stays clear... I have a bucket of water out there with filtered water for them to drink because they don't like the nasty taste of the outside water....

  • Yes I think it is fine for them to be in it. It sounds like it is actually better for them, and for you

  • From everything I have read online (which can't be trusted 100%) it is not OK for anyone to be drinking it on a regular basis. I do trust this source:
