This is not my pool but this is the same colour as mine. I have an 18x52" steel frame with a side filter. After shocking my pool the water turned brown. Used a chemical to remove this water started to turn green, added liquid chlorine now it's brown again.
I tested and got hardness 100, total chlorine 10ppm, total bromine 20ppm, free chlorine 10ppm, ph 6.2, total alkalinity 30ppm
I have bought chemicals that take out metal, ph up, ph down, water clarifier, flog or something it's called haha, and an attachment for my garden hose that removes metal. What I'm wondering are what steps do I take to treat this? Should I empty the pool and refill(takes about 3 days) using my hose filter, or do I add the metal out?
