My friend is filling his new above ground pool with well water that we now know has a TA of 340.
While I know what he'll have to do ultimately to reduce it, what I don't know is whether a pre-filter on the hose will help reduce the makeup water TA much.
My own make up water is softened water by design, so I thought I'd ask those of you with high TA fill water if you've ever found pre-filtering useful.
I have used this pre-filter as a safety to catch iron from my well if the softener regenerates during a top up. Would something like this be a good idea for him?

Thanks in advance for any tips.
