I discovered that my water softener hose was discharging out in the open using a hose that just went directly outside a basement vent and into the open. I'm on a septic/well system so I can't just discharge it down the drain like a lot of tutorials say.
I have a French drain system in my basement leading to a sump pump, but a lot of people recommend not going there as it can wear gaskets and void warranties among other problems.
Some say to push it into a gray water system, but I'm not sure how to do that and seems not DIY. I also have some outdoor underground drainage, like a grate to divert water away from the house, so I could maybe find a way to direct the hose there and hope it goes far enough away.
I could also maybe MacGyver a way to discharge it into a downspout that leads to an underground drain pipe leading far away from the house.
Any other thoughts on how to handle this?
