Hi there. No that is why there is a bypass for situations like that. To fix leaks or to service the water softener without interrupting the water service. If you were bypassing the water softener for a long period of time, the hard water deposits would eventually start to build up in your waterlines and slow down the pressure. No issues on bypass for a day or two. Hope this helps.
