    Collecting the Pool's "Brown Water" for Lawn/Plant usage?

    Being a new pool owner, my wife and I thought about capturing the brown water which comes when we rinse the filter to use for plants and such. Would this be good or bad?

    With a few exceptions, pool water is great for plants. There are a few plants that are especially sensitive. If you have one of those you will already know about it as anything that sensitive is going to require special care all of the time.
