    Would Slime Bags help with Iron?

    In the post "Dealing with scaling/stain during pool season " "Slime Bags" are discussed would they help with removing iron in solution, or when topping up the pool?
    They I believe will filter down to one micron.

    Iron in solution will pass right through. Iron that has crystalized out and clumped will be filtered efficiently, but clumping isn't all that common and can often be caught by a normal filter.

    A slime bag is very handy if your water source has particulate matter in it.
