Aquasoil Dilemma (not what you think)!

I had some AS I in a cooler that I was cycling for the ammonia release. It was in the cooler for a couple of weeks when I had a party at my home. Needless to say it got dumped out onto my lawn. I though it was a loss. After I grew tired of seeing it in my grass and slightly on my patio so after it dried I decided to employ my shop vac. I vaccuumed it all up to the best of my ability and threw it in the cooler with more water in hopes of salvaging it.

Does anyone see any issues with this? I have my lawn treated by Scotts for weed control and fertilization, but other then that nothing else goes on my lawn.

When was your last treatment on your lawn? how long was it on your lawn? I'd be hard pressed NOT to try it, though with something "disposable"--as bad as it sounds. Running carbon with it would certainly help...

A few weeks back. It was for nut hedge/nut grass. It was on there for a week roughly. I am kind of wanting to wait a while and see what the tests say. It smells bad now never had a bad smell before when I did this buit that was with AS II and it was in the winter.

I wouldn't. I don't think the stuff in Scotts is good for weeds and inverts... which is what will most likely be going in your tank. May not be that great for vertebrate life, either.
