    What do I do first?

    I just got an 8 x 2 metal stock tank for my own personal cooler-offer pool.
    I have well water I'd like to use instead of our city water, but I know it has iron, etc. in it.
    What is first?
    Do I take a sample of the water to a pool person?

    Thank You!

    Why don't you want to use your "city water"?

    Welcome to TFP!

    Do you plan to install a pump and filter?
    If yes, the you can follow this guide,
    Pool School - Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools

    If not, then, maybe just fill it and use it over the weekend and drain it.
