Do you mean the plants next to the swimming pool edge or coping, decking? Even with splash out , the chlorine content will not be high enough to effect the plants. There will be no chlorine fumes unless you are having a company add chlorine gas to the pool and even then very little will escape -- will be dissappated by air flow. However, on the other hand many plants will affect the quality of the water and the chemical levels because they are organic. The effect can take place as dropped leaves, bugs, fertilizers, and sprays, dropped flowers ( bouganvilla is the worst). Plants that shed their foliage in the fall are not a good plant around a pool.
Remember, you or the pool guy have to clean them out each and every week. This dead vegetation does little for the filter & pump. Check with a very good nursery in your area for selective plants for pool side use.

I second the Bougainvilla Vine as being the worst.

Another bad plant is the Oleander, a super hardy plant, otherwise.

If chlorine gets on it, it will shed all it's leaves.

Does chlorinated water effect plant growth?

Chlorine is considered a micro-element in plant growth and is required in small amounts for normal plant metabolism. However, applied or absorbed in high concentrations it can burn, damage or even kills plants. Chlorine is toxic to most plants at levels exceeding 350 ppm (parts per million), some more sensitive species such as ferns show toxicity at 100 ppm or more. The "regular" chlorinated water out of the tap doesn't have enough chlorine in it to significantly harm plants. Bottled water normally has a chlorine level of about 50 ppm.
