Advice needed for plumbing of backwash

Postby GLO » Wed 22 Jul, 2020 17:22

My pool builder has to finish a few things form compliance.

My question is around the backwash pl I mbing that feeds into the house waste water.

It is currently a trip hazard and eyesore.

Can this be plumbed in below the surface permanently?

The pool filter (located in the shed in the background of the 2nd photo) is higher than the backwash exit point. So I don't believe there is any risk of house waste water getting into the pool.

Appreciate all constructive feedback before we tile the pool surrounds.

Providing it conforms to local code, my only concern is the backwash water will lay in the pipe and possibly freeze dependant on your location

Thanks Denniswiseman,

We got down to 3c Celsius last night.
We might see some frost but never see below 0 here.
