Hard pond water/

when I test my pond water (4,000 gal pond), everything tests ok except it shows I have hard water. I have added salt thinking that would help, however, there has been no change.
The fish seem to be doing fine (almost ten years for 3 of the Koi), should I even worry about it?

When you say you have hard water...what are you testing, the kh? What does it test at?
