    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I think the best thing to do is post some pictures of the pool house and surrounding area so we can get a better idea of what you are asking and to provide you with the best possible sugestions. Also it would be good to provide your pool specs in you signature so possible answers to your future questions can be best answered to your pool type and size.

    Check local regulations and see if your backwash/waste line has to be plumbed into the household sewer line. Many people use a "T" shaped connector with a valve and leave a fitting to connect a backwash hose. They can use the water for their grass and trees or direct it to the street if allowed.

    Re: new to pool

    You should put your pool specs/equipment in your signature line - you are limited to 5 lines of text. Is this an above ground pool?

    Go to User Control Panel, top left, then Profile, then Edit Signature.
