Will chlorine treated swimming pool water ruin my grass?
Chlorine is not known to have a damaging effect on grass. The resiliency of the soil is fixed so that it can withstand chlorine at high acid levels.

Grass is selective about the nutrients that they allow into their systems.

Small amounts of salt, such as water splashed out or backwash will not harm the grass around the pool. However, if you plan on draining it, you need to drain in stages and into an approved location. Salt in small quantities will not kill grass, but large amounts of salt in the soil will absorb moisture and nutrients until it is no longer able to sustain growth.


On behalf of the State of New Jersey, I am delighted to congratulate you on being selected as the winner of the  Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award in the Sustainability-Business category.

We, at the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, are proud to acknowledge your outstanding environmental work to benefit our state. Your accomplishments are very impressive.  

Once again, please accept our sincere congratulations on this well-deserved recognition.  

Thank you,   

Shawn M. LaTourette 
Commissioner, N.J. Department of Environmental Protection 



“It’s an amazing solution to the problem. It solves something so simply. Right now we’re dumping into storm drains and rivers!

This just waters your grass and takes care of the problem.”


It’s a problem solver

It’s a problem solver. It’s a better solution for backwashing water. I intend to stock it in my store.

We recently brought the Eco Pool Drain into our retail pool store. We also offer it as part of our new in ground pool option package. Our customers are clearly intrigued with both the marketing and the solution to how to properly handle the disposal of both waste and excess pool water. We believe the Eco Pool Drain will be the next big thing to hit the pool industry!

I think it’s a good environmental item that needs to be taken care of because now you can water your lawn without sending the water to the sewer. We will be bringing it into our store.

It’s an amazing solution to the problem. It solves something so simply. Right now were dumping into storm drains and rivers!

Something we have never seen before. Very unique, solves a problem that seems to be in the US and Canada.

– Wayne Yellowees, Canadian Pool & Spa Conference & Expo, Courtice, Ontario, Canada

I thinks it’s something that should be in every pool owner’s back yard. It’s great at spreading the water out instead of destroying the lawn.

– Larry Logel, Brewster Pools Inc., Brewster, New York

We are a catalog company and have been in business for over 160 years. We ship to the US, Canada and Europe. This is something different, cool looking and meets a need that out there. It’s probably something that people are going to want to get.

– Blanca Vega, Hammacher Schlemmer, Niles, Illinois

I like the fact the Eco Pool Drain Fountain does not flood the yard and that it does not slow down the release of pool water. I also like the design.
