Properties need new septic systems for different reasons.  How do I know if I need a new septic system?

Where does your water softener and iron filter recharge water go?

If it goes into your septic system- it is highly encouraged that you reroute your water softener and iron filter recharge water out of the system. Both can cause negative effects on the soil treatment area; potentially reducing the life of your system.
