    Filters for Well Water-Need to top off pool

    We have well water. We had the pool filled with water we had delivered. The pool was accidentley drained a little low after the last big rain. We need to add about 400 gallons to get the water at an appropriate level for the skimmer. I found a filter online that it suppose to fillter out the iron and minerals. I don't want to mess up my "beautiful" sparkly pool. Any thoughts from well water users?

    Do you have a water softener? If so, then use it to refill the pool.

    We do have a water softener also. My husband has a fear of adding any metals or rusty water to the pool, even with pre-filters. Just don't want to mess up the water.

    Yes run it thru your system, you will be fine. I have filled my pool 3 times thru my system.

    Johnnysnok..Did you fill just with the water softener? Any other pre-filters?
