ok to wash with well water?

hey all, have a new black taco that i've been taking to the carwash regularly but keep hearing even the soft-cloth ones can scratch the surface and the touchless ones have trouble removing all the dirt, especially from this black truck. trouble is we have well water. we have a softener hooked-up to all interior lines but not the outside spigots. the iron is so heavy from the spigots that it can actually stain outside surfaces so what can i do-----dry immediately afterwards, use special carwash products, or just avoid doing it at home alltogether?

Mr. Clean Autodry Car Wash kit

This will take the impurities out of the water. I made a huge difference in water spots left from chicago water. I am not positive if it will remove all the sediment from a well but it is worth a try.

I used to have a black camaro and it worked great. My truck is silver since I do not have the time to care for a black daily driver vehicle.
