Safe to backwash into the lawn?

Curious if it's safe to backwash into my lawn? I'm running about a 10ppm FC level. It's just so dry down here in Austin lately and I don't want to waste any water... of course, I don't want to kill any grass either!

I'm using liquid bleach for chlorine.

Most kinds of grass are just fine with water from a SWG pool. There are many plants that are not bothered by the salt level from a SWG pool. If you are in an area that gets very little rainfall, the salt can build up in the soil and you may need to limit swimming pool water use to salt tolerant plants.
