Hello - I am new to the group and have a question. I have a well. After having my liner changed I added both well water and city water to my pool to fill it quicker. I would say it is about half and half. As soon as it was filled, and I turned on the chlorinater, it turned brown. From past experience, I know that means metal. So i did what everyone recommends and removed the stain. Here is the issue. My neighbor and I share the well. He uses the well water to maintain and to fill his pool. No city water. He has no problem with staining at all! Is there any other factor that I am missing? I am spending a ton of money to keep my pool nice as I am putting it on the market.
Also, I have some old chlorine tabs that have been exposed to sun and heat. They smell very strong and I know are probably not as effective. Could these cause part of the problem? Thanks.
