    Discharging Saltwater from Filter Onto Concrete Driveway

    Whenever I back-wash or remove water from my pool, the water runs down my concrete driveway into the rain gutter that runs along the street.

    I know that putting salt on concrete is a bad idea when using full strength, for example, to melt ice. Will the water from my SWG pool damage the surface of the concrete?

    eventually yes, but whether it's still going to be your problem when it happens is a big question
    you can rinse it off with the garden hose afterwards, or discharge it somewhere else
