I am new owner of older home with older chlorine pool, new to TFP, and new to the care and feeding of pools. I have been evaluating converting to SWG or ionizer, and am somewhat leaning toward the SWG option. But I have not been able to get past my concern about the possible damage the salt water backwash may have on our landscaping. My property was developed into quite a garden by the prior owners, and am not willing to charge ahead and see what plants can and cannot tolerate the salty backwash.
However, I am wondering if anyone has any experience with or has considered providing non-salted backwash water from a tank or other source - e.g., a source other than the pool.
Would appreciate your thoughts.
