water from softener kills grass/trees
Unlike my neighbors who have their water softener backwash dump into their septic tank, mine goes into the sump pump and dumps on the gass which has made a huge swath of dead grass. We tried using a barrel for the downshout, but with our clay soil, it simply overflows, so diverting the sump/softener water into an underground barrel won't work. It seems the quack grass is starting to grow in that barren area, and I have alot of the quack in my FLOWER BEDS to transplant, LOL. How about trees?
