H2O Treatment System Discharge

I did a fairly new house this week with a water treatment system. I disclaim saying anything about either what a system is for or whether it works or not. All I really pay attention to is where the system is discharging, being sure it has an air gap at a drain, or goes outside. This unit had no discharge line at all, so I called it as needing further inspection by somebody smarter than me about such stuff. Don't all systems need a discharge line for something?

When you say "water treatment system", what exactly are you talking about? Potable water filtration, wastewater treatment(?).....

A water softener needs a discharge line. Are you sure that this wasn't just a filtration system?

This was not simply filtration, atleast not just sediment filtration. Certainly not waste water treatment. 'Sorry I was not more clear. It had one large tank about 5' high and 20" in diameter with a domed top to it,and another tank containing 'caustic solution' that was about 3' high. As with all other systems that I've seen, there were no identifying labels.
