Water softener drainage problem
I just found out that our water softener in our new house sends salty waste water (after it cycles)through drain tile out to the woods that are in the back yard. The guys in my family tell me older systems used to send the waste water into the septic system, but the new ones don't because the salt hurts the septic's longevity.
The tree that is closest to the outlet is unhealthy. The neighbor's outlet has prevented EVERYTHING from growing in a 2'X 30' patch downhill.
How do we collect this salty waste water (40 Gal) produced weekly and prevent it from reaching the soil?
How do we reverse the damage done to the soil where it has been dumping?
Thank you for helping to save my trees.
