    Where to Dump Water

    Hi all,

    Want to lower my CYA, where is the best place to pump the pool water. Can it be pumped on the lawn? I keep my FC on the 9-12 area because of my CYA being 100. I could pump it out to the street but thats at least 150 foot run. Thanks in advance everyone, happy summer!

    I watered my lawn with 220 CYA and 24 FC with no apparent harm.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Yes you can put in on your yard. Cya will not hurt your grass. I have been doing it for yrs. I also backwash in the yard.
    If you pump a lot of water on your yard it may erode the area where the hose sits do to water presure.
