Hubby and I are working on installing a used pool that came with a Hayward pump and filter... sorry, I don't have the specs currently on sizes, etc.
The owner said the sand is just a couple of years old and shouldn't need replaced yet. Upon looking at the sand, it is white/cream on top and about an inch under that it is orange/rust colored. Being our first pool, I don't know what the sand looks like when you first purchase it.
I assume that he filled his pool with a well because of where he lives and am concerned that this might be iron. Didn't know if any of it would likely come out into our water when we start using it. He never mentioned using any sequestering agents, but we didn't ask... might have Hubby call him to see if he ever had trouble so we know what we're dealing with.
Don't really want to take on the expense of the sand right now... takes 200 lbs worth, but don't want to risk adding any more iron to the water than our own well will be giving us (we're filtering with a metaltrap and a house filter when we fill it).
Just wanted your opinions on what we should do. If we do decide to purchase sand, what is the cheapest way to go?
