Terrestrial plants that are able to survive in or very close to sea or brak water are called Halophytes, this means that they are able to either process salt water or extract water from salt water.

Most plants cannot survive on sea/ saline or brak water, as the process of osmosis that enables water to be drawn into the roots cannot work due to the high concentrations of salt; in fact the process is reversed and water is drawn out of the roots and into the saline soil.

Here are some saltwater plants.

Red Mangrove Propagule

Shaving Brush Plant

Halimeda Plant

Kelp on Rock, Smooth Leaf

Kelp on Rock, Grape

Maiden's Hair Plant

Mermaid's Fan Plant

Chaetomorpha Algae - Aquacultured

Ulva Lettuce Algae - Aquacultured

If looking for a tree in addition to Mangrove, in laboratory tests Russian Olive has been found capable of surviving extremely sodic conditions. Check to see if this tree is invasive in your area.

How can you tell if your water level dropping is normal or a leak?

Fill a bucket with water, then mark the water level on the bucket with a waterproof marker. Set the bucket next to the pool. Next, mark the water level of the pool. After a couple of days, check the marks on the bucket and the pool. They should measure the same (having lost the same amount of water due to evaporation). If the pool level has dropped more than the level of water in the bucket, you have a leak somewhere. (By the way, make sure your dog hasn't drank out of the bucket, or pool!)

How should you drain a salt water pool?

Firstly, if you choose to convert your pool to the salt-water (saline) system, you will not need to drain the pool as often as if you were manually chlorinating the pool. Secondly, the mild salinity of the water is probably less than the salinity of the ground-water in your area. I do not know of any common plants, grass etc which would be harmed by the 3000-4500ppm salinity of your pool water.
