Gardening Near a Swimming Pool

I would like to move the location of my vegetable garden.  Its current location does not get enough sun as it sits directly between the neighbor's garage and mine.  The problem is that my yard is very small and in the summer I have a 15' swimming pool set up in the middle of the yard.  How far away should my vegetable garden be from the pool?  Is 5-6' feet far enough? 

The chemicals used to treat swimming pool water can be harmful to our natural water ways and plants.  Avoid emptying your pool water onto the garden.  The small amount of water reaching the garden from occasional splashing should not be a problem.   Consider adding a decorative fence to keep swimmers and splashing water out of the garden.
