Generally the piping allowing the septic waters to leach into the ground are from 18″ to 20″. needs to be below the freeze line. As far as the distance from the pool, that might be a question you ask the pool contractor and if he gives you a distance and you choose him, be sure your contract includes him repairing or retrofitting the pool if needed. I think tho the systems are so separate there would not be and issue.

Each area has their own set of guidelines that must be followed according to the city or county by laws.
I can tell you this check it for yourself because any installer of plumbing is apt to give you the current laws as opposed to the grandfather laws.
You ask how do I know this? A company tried to sell me $ 15,000 worth of pipe and labor I didn’t need. I checked and found out about the grandfather law.
