Would it be safe to plant my garden in the soil under an old swimming pool. The liner had a leak and the pool water, with chemicals, drained out. How many years before the soil would be safe to plant vegetables in.

I don't know about vegetables, but I know grass grows happily in such a location.

Just send a sample of soil to get tested for PH. The soil should be fine but the PH may need to be adjusted for certain plants.
