I recently completed the construction of our new salt water pool, only then to consider the possible problems that I may have with spill over of the pool water. I love to garden and have a yard full of plants that I transplanted before the excavation to safe areas away from the construction. The plan was/is to replant many of them at waters adge. My pool design is without a deck on 1 half of the pool, just a 12" coping. I am now wondering if I sould build the coping taller to retain the spill over. My builder told me that 3000ppm salt content is ideal and that the Ocean is around 6500ppm so that the salt should not be an issue. But I need more than his opinion to satisfy my concerns and risk losing hundreds on dollars in plants and hours of work.
