Sorry I was not of help Mary. Couple of points to remember though, even if you take the brine home you should recycle the plastic jug. You could ask a plumber in your area if it is legal to discharge water softener water on the surface, it is in my state and the brine is just water softener discharge. If illegal or you are afraid of killing the grass, stick a spade in the ground and pour the brine in avoiding the grass and the roots. I would be in hog heaven if salt water would kill grass and expecally weeds around here. Packing it home again sounds like the best answer, whatever I take out, I take back even if they have dumpsters.
