Pool back wash and waste water

Post by lefkes » Wed Jun 10, 2020 1:03 pm

For fourteen years the back wash and waste water from cleaning the pool have been pumped through my garden wall onto a field , For some reason the owner of the field[ which has never been used for crops or any other purposes ] has decided to block the pipe with cement . What are my options now and how do other pool owners cope with waste water ??.
Would be grateful for any replies .Lefkes.

Not sure how big your property is but our waste goes directly into our garden, it soaks into the ground overnight.

Yes we used to do the same, it never harmed our plants. Our shower water in the en-suite used to run onto our garden too.

Thanks Jackie, as long as the Chlorine levels aren't too high it should be harmless

My backwash water goes into a large white plastic tank and is pumped from there up to smaller barrels more conveniently located for filling watering cans so I can readily water my potted plants, by which time any chlorine has long dissipated.
