We have a Summer Escape 15' above ground pool. Had 3800 gallons of water brought in and added 200 gallons from our well..... BIG mistake. Within 4 hours of getting it filled our water was a light brown color. Knowing nothing about pools we added shock. Didn't help. I balanced the PH, stabilizer and alk and started chlorine. Water color got even worse. So we stopped the chlorine for 24 hours and added Iron Myte. It cleared it up very well. We did have a tiny tiny green tint to it, but the Iron Myte spokesperson told me once I started chlorine it would clear it up. So after 24 hours of much better water, I started the process again (balanced PH, stabilizer and alk) and I tried chlorine. 24 hours later and I'm back to light brown water. 2 hours ago I pulled my filter and chlorine tabs. Now what do I do???
(Oh and I've changed the filter on the skimmer a total of 8 times ...... they were coffee colored each time I pulled them)
I probably sound crazy here ...... we are VERY new to this pool thing and I feel I'm going crazy. I thought this would be easy!!
Thanks in advance!!
