Disposal of old salt water

With water changes, it seems a lot of water is being wasted down the drain...

Is it possible to reuse the water and somehow water the lawn or something?

I guess if it is used to water the lawn, we'd eventually get salt build up

I use it for weed control on my gravel driveway. Way back in the ancient times, the victor would salt the defeated's fields, to keep crops from growing...

I wouldn't put it on grass.

I kept dumping mine off the porch into the front yard, then I realized that is why the grass never came back in there this spring.

I will have to agree with both. Any more just putting weed killer on weeds seems to make them grow more, however with salt nothing grows back for a long while!


Edit* That quote thingy got me again.

It would be good on my neighbors lawn. It might keep her from shooting rocks from her yard into the side of my house and car! JK!

Interesting you say that roka.

We don't have any neighbors... yet. On each side of us is empty lots with weeds and stuff growing. Maybe there is a use for the water after all...
