Hello Everyone  Wink
 
I have a HUGE dilemma I need assistance with !!
 
I really need your help if you are able to help me  Huh
 
I know this forum is all about "green",  and believe me, I do my best to help the environment too.
 
Anyhow, here's my dilemma . . .
 
We have an inground pool and we have to replace the liner.
 
Sooooooooo
 
of course they have to empty the pool and then replace the liner and then fill up the pool again.
 
It truly truly kills me  Cry to know that all that water will just be going down the sewer drain!!

We're talking over 110,000 litres of water !!  (We have a large pool 20x30 ft and 9 feet deep).
 
I can only ask them to put so much water on my front lawn and trees.
 
I was going to ask the neighbors on either side if we could water their lawns, etc.
however,
the hose the pool company uses to drain with is like 3 - 4 inches wide so I don't know if there is any type of attachment that one can attach to that hose and then attach a garden hose so we can just keep attaching garden hoses and share the water with as many lawns on our street as possible.  Know what I mean?
I don't think the pool company has a 2000 foot hose!
 
I truly would love to hear from any of you about any ideas to help use this water  Smiley

THANKS SO MUCH  Kiss

Won't the Chlorine in the water kill the grass?

I feel your pain but the water will have more chlorine than standard tap water so the plants won't like it.

I hate to sound like a greenie but do you really need your own swimming pool?
