Good morning all. I am a newbie here, and a newbie to swimming pool care. We purchased a home with a pool. We have been trying to open the pool for a month now, but we live out in the sticks and have well water with high amounts of iron. When we filled the pool, our iron level was 6. Yes, 6! After weeks of metal removers, we are now down to .75. My questions are, how low does the iron have to be before we can move on to the normal opening procedures? Is .75 still really high? Will my pool turn brown if I shock it right now? What would we do next after all the metal is gone?
Here are the #'s that we have right now.
Thanks for any help, it has been so hot here, we all just want to swim!!
