    is it bad to water my lawn with pool water? I occasionally backwash my pool onto my lawn. It seems like a great way to get an inch down in a quick 2 minutes. :)

    Is it possible the chlorine could harm it? I've heard chlorine evaporates really fast

    never water your lawn with pool water treated with chlorine...... It will kill the grass!!

    weird hasn't even tainted it yet. I have a fiberglass pool that requires very little chlorie and I usually backwash it before shocking it so the chlorine level is probably between 1 and 2 ppm

    With the low chlorine it will not kill the grass but be careful don't know what the cut off point is
