I'm hoping folks can share how they discharge water when backwashing, vacuuming to waste or when closing a pool. We keep hearing from a neighbor, whose property grade is lower than ours, whenever we or a pool company discharge water. It's not like this is happening all the time, but at least a few times a year.
Our discharge is actually located at the furthest point in their property as wll as ours. When it does go into their property, it disperses over a wide area and does not floor their yard, basement, etc. Unfortunately for them and us, the pool was here before we or they lived in our homes and their property is downstream.
Local zoning laws say you can't discharge into a sewer or storm drainage. I have not found any actual rules or laws about water that goes into your neighbor's yard, though there is guidance about reducing the chlorine level, PH level and dispersing water over a broad area.
So what do you do to maintain civility in the neighborhood?
