My neighbor has been subjected to pool schooling over and over again and has asked my help in getting his pool sparkling. Here's the facts
Filled his pool with VERY hard iron water. Right now his pool is orange/brown. here are the numbers,
He has an index 7600 gallon pool.
I know he has to start with getting the cya to about 40 and I can help with that.
I know his pH needs to be lowered to 7 so he can get the TA lowered too.
I know that he needs to begin and complete the shocking process.
I DO NOT know what to do about the iron as I do not have iron.
Just want to make sure I give him the correct advice so he won't feel compelled to run back to the pool store with his tail between his legs.
Advise if this is the wrong plan:
lower pH to 7 with 106 oz muriatic acid
add 42 oz stabilizer
start shocking when pH is in a better place.
