Water Softener

I live in lower northern Michigan, I would like to install a water softener but I am on a well and septic system, where would the backflash water drain to because I always see that it can not go into the septic tank. Could the softener be installed in the well house? The well house is fully insulated.

Re: Water Softener

Most softeners these days can be set up to use either sodium base salt or a potassium base product like "Natures Own". That is what I use and it can be discharged into the septic system or directly on the ground. It is not harmful to septic systems or plants. Yes it can be installed in a pump house as long as it is kept from freezing.
