    I think I have an Iron issue!

    Pool water has turned light green and all white vinyl parts have a brown stained look. The blue liner has brown/black splotches on it. Tried mineral magnet and it seemed to work but I am wondering if there is a cheaper home version to get the iron out.

    Green is almost always algae. While you may have iron, Probablility dictates you do not have enough chlorine in your pool. Can you post a set of test results?

    Chlorine level is off the charts. I am high in chlorine.

    You can read about the Absorbic Acid treatment in Pool School for removing Iron stains.
