First, I would like to say, long time reader, first time poster. I made the mistake is trying to take pool guy advice first at the store, then my own ideas until finalyl following pool school.
However, I ran into a snag. I ordered the K2006, but I have the generic test kits, two actually form Home Depot and Wal-Mart to hold over until then. All of my "vitals" were good as far as i know.
TA 150 ppm
FC was steady over night, but since the first day of shocking, pool has been a murky green, FC has been holding steady for three days now with slight bleach adds. I finally caved and had my wife run a water sample to the pool store, i suspected metals from all of my online research. The store said it was high Iron, no ppm provided, I already purchased metal magic and poured the quart in last night. Backwashed this morning, dark green,black and brown water came out for 30 seconds and then went to slight orange and then cleared. The pool water color is the same today though. Have to add water from a well, but hose water is treated with a H2)2 dosing system and a softener, should be no Iron in that water. I am lost, where to go next.
