Pat and Fred:
A lot of water is used in the regeneration cycle of your water softener. Putting this much water into your septic system, may overwhelm it's ability to perk that volume of water in your drain field. Why not install a French drain for your water softener and washing machine needs and take a load off your septic system?
Lots of Luck .............Bud

We have a 3 year old septic system. The the water softener drain connects to it. When the softener cycles, the toilet begins to bubble loudly and splashes water out. This continues for several hours. There is no bad odor when this happens. While this is going on we can flush the toilets but they fill to the rim and very slowly drain completely and then bubble. What is causing this and how is it fixed?
