re: Never ceases to amaze me what people will do
Defintiely against code. Talk to your neighbor. Make sure he knows what's going on. Tell him that he needs to have that line removed and directed towards a drain.


Assuming this is the pool's drain line, most people don't drain their pool all that often, but there is no way it should be diverted to your backyard.

SO try the rational approach, as others have mentioned.

If he is a dick, I would be tempted to pipe it up to the top of the fence with a spray head or nozzle pointed back at his pump or his pool.

When I did my pool, it was required to run the backwash line to the sewer.

OP hasn’t posted in 4 days. Some one may need to check on his well being after confronting the neighbor

Same in East Baton Rouge parish. I asked a friend who is a plumber and he said it's a health code item because pool water is in contact with your skin and thus has to be disposed into the sewer line.

Is there any pressure going to that pipe? If so, I would put and 90 elbow up, reduce it to 1/2 inch and use a 22.5 elbow just below the top of the fence pointed back into his yard.


This is what I came here to say. Only I'd point the discharge straight at his pool equipment if it turned out he didn't know about it.

There's 110% chance the homeowner doesn't know. A lot of folks with pools have never seen their equipment, much less where a drain pipe was placed. They pay people to do that sh!t.



None of that matters. It is the homeowners pool and his/her responsibility. End of story

Of course it matters(because some are saying he does and some not), and no one is saying it's not his responsibility.

When I have work done on my home, I inspect it every step of the way, because when the contractor leaves, I OWN IT.

It means the OP's neighbor is 100% at fault for not checking on his contractor's work. Nothing else needs to be said.

But he isnt.

You say he has 100% responsiblity, but way more than 75% of pool build occurs in ways you could never inspect or see for that matter. No, the contractor is responsible to code. You didnt hire Jose and Xavier from the Home Depot parking lot for a reason.

So you have a full understanding of all possible work any contractor does? I try to know a good bit about any work I get done to my house, but I know that's not typical. There's no way you can expect everyone to fully understand what a contractor is doing to their home. Especially if it's a pipe buried under ground.

Could the neighbor have known......sure. Did they know......maybe. Should you blow up any relationship with the person who lives next to the biggest investment you likely own based on that info.....go for it if you want to.

No one is claiming the homeowner is not at fault. The discussion about whether or not the homeowner knew is dictating how people are suggesting the OP approach the neighbor.

"Hey, Mr Contractor, what's that trench that leads from my pump, under the fence and into my neighbor's yard for?" said the homeowner.

Because pool builders don't bore their pipe in where you don't know it, they dig trenches.
