I just have a dilemma because if I ever set up a salt tank again, I would have no clue what to do with the water. We have a septic tank, so I hear it isn't best to pour your water down the drain. We have a storm drain in our backyard (we have flooding issues), but I think that is illegal to pour it there. We also have a well, so I am afraid that if we pour it in the yard it could end up in the well. See my dilemma here? Lol

I don't think it would be illegal to dump to it down a storm drain, and there would be no worry about it ending up in the well - the ground is a great filter

It will kill grass and other vegetation though - and the article I linked above says "diluted seawater". I wouldn't recommend dumping it on most things that you want to live.

Thanks.

How has your tank been doing?
