    Almost there - iron stains

    So, the pool I am trying to clear is almost there. I added a sequestrant, did an AA treatment, and the stains are gone. The water has gone from a yellow brown to a nice blue. I am adding some chlorine in slowly, but it is still CLOUDY. Will a clarifier help here? Just anxious to be done with this pool.

    Total alkalinity, calcium hardness, pH levels?

    msumoose,

    Don't you have another thread started? You should keep tour info together so it tells your whole "story" and gets you the best advice possible. I'm looking for your other thread but can't find it yet.

    Clarifier's often work and many times make it worse. I would never suggest the use of a clarifier but some folks use them and have success.
