We are planning to add a Float tank to our day spa. Our current landlord told me yesterday that the entire commercial set of buildings where our spa is located is connected to a septic tank. She says that she has concerns about dumping the solution in the tank (she was told not to.)


The property is next to a wooded area and she suggested we could simply drain it there but there is a creek and she is concerned the city would not approve (I can't say I think this sounds like a great idea. )



So, does anyone have input on this? Will the solution damage the septic system?

Comment
We have sold float tanks in past to both commercial customers and private users that were on septic systems, and were told there would be no problems, when we investigated it, and there were not any problems...



We have seen/heard this concern mentioned of before....



Epsom salt water could be disposed of without harm to grass, trees, etc... it actually is good for them...

Float solution can be akin to a super fertiliser, and it will be good not to drain the pod's salt water into the creek.It might cause an algae bloom in the water, which would defintely not be good for the environment.


I believe most waste water sewer will be able to treat the salt water. I generally would flush it down a waste water sewer line, typically my shower, when I'm changing the pod's water. You should speak to the local department about it though. Regulations and treatment methods differs from place to place. It will also depend if the facility you are in is connected to a waste water sewer line.


If all else fails, there are waste water companies that will help you dispose of the salt water. However, these are generally rather expensive, and should only be called upon if there are no further options.

So there are companies that can take the water away for you. In general, as long as you follow the proper protocols, you will not need to change the water very often (I can discuss more if you want. ) Not sure about septic system, doesn't sound like a good idea.

Comment
I would definitely be interested to hear more about what type of company would take the water?



To my understanding, based on maintenance, etc, the solution would need to be changed every 6-12 months?



We've done quite a bit of research and tank maintenance is my biggest concern! I want to be sure we are prepared.
