I live in Michigan and recently purchased a house with well water, which has a water softener system. In the backyard, there is pipe which is where the backflush water empties.
My question: Is the backflush water harmful to my plants/trees? Is there a good way to handle this backflush water? The previous owner had a pipe which extended into a small metal reservior, but that pipe has since broken off. Should I install a new reservior to contain the backflush water to allow it to evaporate? The amount of water that gets ejected each time is enough to keep the area wet.
Your comments are appreciated.
