Since I live in apartments, I share a courtyard with about 6 other apartments (were on the back side of the property, so I have a long strip of grass thats JUST for the 3 bedroom townhomes) And our tub will be placed in the dining room, next to the back door. Now if we were to just dump it out on the back grass - would this cause issues with the other residents? Would it stink up the back yard? Would it kill the grass? Im all for draining down the sink if need be via hose, but out the back door would be easier - and dont want attract vicious wildlife who smell blood if you get my drift!! What is your experience? Thanks!!

I wouldn't. Could you drain it down your bathtub?

I wouldn't, I'd be afraid of critters showing up too.

Yup I can drain it down the kitchen sink or the toilet - it just sounds too easy to throw it out the back door, but the nutrients we have (I spelled that wrong - its like a beaver but a rat at the same time) in the tiny creek behind my house....ya dont need those coming up to visit
