Question Soft water for hatching ?

Hi all!
I ordered some eggs that will come next week and am trying to get everything laid out on what I need to do. I have read that you can't raise eggs in soft water... my apartment building uses a water softener so my question is if the eggs cannot go in this water, what do I do then? Is there a way to change the water (I wondered about boiling it) or another source I can get water that wouldn't be softened? I have no idea if bottled water or anything like that would work and I don't want to kill them off before I've even had a chance to try and raise them because I used bad water. I'm only getting 10 eggs so I'm thinking if one even makes it I will be lucky (don't really know what the hatch rate is and since it's my first time... ya know)
Thanks!!
Emily
