    Bulk delivery of green water

    Hello everyone.
    Just had my pool renovated with new plaster & tile. Pool guy called a local pool water company to fill & the water is bright green. I've learned from this site that there is metal in the water. I am concerned about this water being on my brand new wet plaster. Do you think I should require that the guy pump the water out & find some better water to put in?
    Any input would be greatly appreciated! I did a great job attaching the photo. My pool is awesome because the water stays in it when it's inverted.

    Hi, welcome to TFP! Since one of the main reasons to have water delivered is to get metal free water I would ask if there is a metal free source available. Are you not able to fill the pool from your tap?

    Has anything been added to this water that you know of, and what was the source? Normally, it won't turn green from metals until Free Chlorine is introduced. I'm not sure you have metals just yet, but do reply and let us know those answers.

    Municipal source I imagine. Nothing has been added. First fill from a new plaster renovation. I'm going home to meet with the filler & renovator now.
    Thanks for your responses & I'll advise shortly.

    Here's how mine looked mid fill from the tap...it cleared up just fine, though the plaster company did add a sequestrant after it filled.
