Philodendron Plants
Q.

Possible root damage to pool equipment

Zone 77536 | Anonymous added on August 14, 2018 | Answered

We have a Philodendron approximately 2 feet from our pool heater/pump and are concerned that the root system could damage the lines of the equipment. Also, we have two Queen Palms in the same area as the Philodendron and are wondering about the root system possibly doing damage to the equipment as well. We also have a Philodendron that is next to our easement that has all utilities in that area. Pictures 1, 2 & 3 is around the pool equipment and picture #4 is of the easement area. Your expert advice is greatly appreciated.

None of your plantings should be an issue around your pool.
