Is it OK for my pump to pump out my water softener discharge?

In most cases the pump is NOT designed for that. The high salt content of water softener discharge is very corrosive and will attack the seals, the screws, and even the motor shaft. We recommend that you find an alternate place for the water softener discharge or contact a professional contractor to help design a proper disposal system for you.
