Does salt water in the pool kill your grass if you back wash and will the grass die around the pool by splashing water?
Salt is actually good for your grass, but if you constantly backwash in the same place you could flood your grass overwatering it. And no, of course splashing saltwater will not kill your grass. Well, in my experience, our salt-water pool killed the grass around the pool - just from splashing. Also, the pool maintenance guys accidentally spilled pure salt on an area of grass and killed it. in fact nothing will grow back there now. We have just conveted to a non-salt water pool to see how well the grass rebounds. I wonder what effect the chlorine has on the grass at 3.0 ppm. BTW, there is only 12 inches of stone coping separating the pool and the grass. I'm curious where the first responder got his information.

Will a pool sitting on the grass cause it to die and will splashing water on the grass kill it if it has chlorine in it?
Answer . Yes, an above ground pool sitting on the grass will eventually kill the grass. Most above ground pool manufacturers recommend that you remove the grass before fill…ing the pool because the grass can also harm the liner over a long time.. The actual chlorine in the pool water is unlikely to damage the grass on its own. More likely is that the water itself may damage depending on how much water gets splashed out; the exact type of grass; and how well the ground drains.
What type of grass would be most suitable surrounding a pool if you're concerned with salt water damage to grass?
Answer . Red Top Grass grows well around wet conditions and might be the solution you need.. If you are concerned about the effects of Sodium chloride on the soil surround…ing a salt water pool less harmful alternatives are available in Magnesium chloride and Potassium chloride in fact these are good for the garden.
Yes, but when taken down you can reseed. If it is a large pool you may want to dig a half a foot to a foot into the ground making sure the ground is level. and place the pool …in that circumference for better stability. If it is a small child's pool you need o move it every 2-3 days as not to kill your grass.
Answer . yes because the chemcials will kill the grass or at least discolor it.
Answer . I suggest you review the instructions that come with your chlorinator. In my pool it is crystal clear so long as the salt is between 2700 and 3300 ppm.
\nProbably not. Taking a leak there is more a likely suspect.\nYou have clorinated products in the pool. \n. \nPure Clorox will do some real gobble up work. It would take a l…ot of clorine water to do the same. I have never seen any damage to any pool area grasses. The clorine splashed water can cut down on ground bugs. Ask your pool supply provider. \nDon't forget to use pool water to water your grass in this drought area. (GA)
with a normal pool it should not do any harm However if you have a sodium chloride saltwater pool you may end up with a build up of salt that can harm the soil and plants. On …the other hand if you have the new salt system that used Magnesium ans potasium chloride then its good for the lawn.
If you have a salt water pool and splashed water has caused stains around your pool decking how can you remove them?
Scrub it down with fresh water and a stiff broom or brush
Not unless the salinity level was overly high to begin with. Normal salt range for most systems is from 2,600 ppm to 3,600 ppm, lower than the salt level in your tears. I use …my salt water waste on my grass, and it is thriving!! If your equipment is malfunctioning, and your salt level is 'overly high', then it could possibly kill your grass. The Romans 'salted' the fields of their conquered enemies to prevent them from being able to use the fields again, an effective trick.
No, the chlorine will infect the plant
Most likely not

It wont usually do much harm if you don't do it to often. however the salt Will build up after a while if used regularly, killing most normal plants.

I have worked around salt water pools for years and have never seen any particular problem with it. however if you were to use the backwash for gardening purposes you may end …up wit a build up of salt in the soil. this would also depend upon how well drained the soil is and how much rain fall in the area. the concentration of salt in a salt water pool is identical to the salt in a tear drop, so it is not very strong. If the salt that is used in the pool is magnesium and potassium chloride then it is actually good for the garden, this is however unusual as the vast majority of pool use sodium chloride which is like table salt.
Yes. The salt sucks out the water inside the plants.
In Groundwater and Well Water
No, by the time it gets deep enough the salt has gone
In Swimming Pools
Yes It can. If you have a indoor pool you don't have to worry aboutthat.
