    Worried about backwash

    Hi All,

    Just started my conversion yesterday and I'm super excited at how clear my pool is going to look! I do have a question about water empties into my yard and I was wondering how bad the lawn gets with all of the bleach in the water? How quickly did everyone's yard bounce back after it was all over?

    The chlorine in the water won't be a problem for the lawn. It will get used up almost instantly The net effect will be that you will be watering your lawn, which is generally a good thing.
