    What can i use the old pool water for irrigation?

    Just wonder if it is safe to use chlorinated pool water to irrigate landscape. If it is a salt water pool, the water is too salty for plants, right?

    Lazy-L shaped pool and a spa. 22.5k gallons. Pentair VS pump. Pentair cartridge filter CCP520. STA-Rite SR400NA heater (400K BTU). Leuder limestone coping. Pebble sheen (blue granite) Wooden deck.

    chlorinated water won't hurt anything. You can google search the forum on this subject, and the reported affects of salt water. Top right corner of your screen.

    It really depends on the type of plants
