    What do I do with 10,ooo gal of salt water?

    Going to drain my 22 ft. pool and do a better job of setting it up next year, support frame does not look good as it should. Question is, will the salt water kill the lawn, maybe to the point that grass will not grow back, I don't know? I can siphon it 100 ft, but it still would be on the grass. I think I have 300 or more lbs of salt in it, that seems like it will do some harm. Thanks

    Do you get rain where you are and does the grass have good drainage? Many grasses can tolerate sodic soil conditions and, at 3,000ppm salt concentration, that's not a whole lot of sodium added especially if you live in a climate that gets a decent amount of precipitation.
