    I heard Travis County actually uses tax dollars to put substances and sweat into the tap water to give it that authentic sixth street taste.

    Oh I do that myself to save money. Just pour some shots in it, a healthy dose of regret, and a dash of shame.

    I hear it is better if you leave the water out. I donít have proof but I hear water will rust your gut.


    I just have my discharge dumping in the bird fountain. When it over flows it waters the flower bed and a good piece of the yard.

    You got all the "proof" in the world if you leave the water out. Oh man... Dad jokes... As what my wife would call them.

    My discharge just goes straight to the grass, but I like the idea of discharging to a bird fountain.

    Short of packing it looks like a lot of work.
    You can run 1/4" garden tubing from Home Depot-it's cheap and they come in 100 ft increments.

    My ro di is literally 6 feet from the front lawn so it drains in the lawn.
