    I have A home out in the country. We have A septic system & have had very little problems with it . I have A water softner & A " Non Chemical Iron Eater" also .Both these systems regenerate and the water from the regeneration is directed into where my sump pump is . That water then pumped by my sump pump out onto the back lawn. My question is; can I have the water , instead of going into the area where the sump pump is, go into my septic system ?
    Thanks in advance
    Anthony
