    Salt water + My Lawn = Dangerous Combination?

    After some epic rainstorms out here, the water level in my 30,000 gallon pool is just a bit too high. I would like to drain a couple inches of water out to my lawn. I just recently installed a SWG and am running with salinity of around 3100 PPM.

    Curious to hear what kind of experiences people on TFP have had draining saltwater to the lawn? 2 inches of water from my pool would equate to around 1,000 gallons...

    Thanks!

    I have around the same size pool and I backwash all the time and have had to drain due to rain also. I haven't noticed any issued with my lawn at all.

    There are some rare plants that are sensitive to salt level but people usually know when they have those. If it's just grass and shrubbery, it won't hurt a thing.
