We have an Intex 16 x 48 pool using the pump it came with and a saltwater generator. Filled pool with well water (using sock over water hose to filter some of the minerals out). Started pump & generator last night. This morning have emerald green pool (which I'm sure is due to metals in our well water) with the following levels via test strips (test kit hasn't arrived)
Free chlorine 1.0ppm
Total Alkalinity 40
Calcium Hardness between 0-100
I know I need to get the minerals out of the water. Do I use Scale, metal, and stain remover before or after I get the pH level up using borax or baking soda?
My daughter has eczema and we want to use as many natural products as possible to keep the levels where they need to be.
Thanks in advance!
