Will the discharge from a water softener cause problems on a septic system? I am talking about the backflow from the water softener when it does a cleaning cycle. I have a new low pressure drip systems, and it was leaking, bad. The plumbing inspector told me to take that off, I did and several months later it dried up. I also ran a permanent drain from my old septic field, the 10" corrogated sock pipe to daylight because I was getting a lot of surface water at the bottom of my old field. 1000's of gallons must have ran from that pipe. It is always wet where I drained it to. Before I did it the engineer told me to run a "down slope interceptor" drain in the same location. He told me the water table was to high. Does any of this sound feasable? I know running the old drain field to daylight really dried out the bottom of my yard!
