    oops to my lawn


    So I have a big inground that i had to drain to below jets yadda yadda to close up. I shocked the pool and treated it before I closed it. I think the shock level was likely high, 8ish by the time i began draining. I drained it through a pump into a hose and onto my lawn. My lawn now a week or 2 later looks like light green in certain spots (where the water drained). Has anyone done this? Have I caused irreversable damage to my lawn? Will this be better next spring? Ugh..

    Hayward Pump 3/4 HP - brand new
    sta rite sand filter - not sure of size, i will get back to this
    20 by 40 inground pool, vinyl liner, 8ft deep end
    2 skimmers and a main drain.
    1 jet in the deep end, 1 jet in the shallow end.
    Live in New England = about 3 months of pool usage.

    If it does not go brown it should be fine. Otherwise you just may need to re-seed in the spring time.

    I found my lawn did not like the pool water at all. My lawn isn't in the best of shape though...

    I backwash into my yard all the time. It doesn't seem to phase it in the least. In fact those areas are often greener than others.

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!
