Hi everyone ... I've been reading all the posts about iron staining and how to fix. We've had our pool for about 7 years now and this is the first year we've had issues with it. This year, we had a small nick in our liner and, because we have salt water, it rusted before we could find it. It's since been patched, but oh what headaches trying to clear it up! Last Sunday night, I did an AA treatment (second one this year). Pool has been very cloudy since. I added about 1 litre of MetaSol by Pool Boss which is an HEDP sequestrant that same night. 24 hours later, I started adding 6% liquid bleach. I've added approx. 2 litres over the course of 5 days but no improvement and I can't seem to raise the chlorine level at all. Here are my latest readings: TC: 0, FC = 0, ph = 7.5, TA = 85, Calcium Hardness = 175, Stabilizer = 30, Salt = 3300. I have some non-chlorine product here (made by Tabex - Shock N Swim). Is it worth adding that? I know I'm supposed to bring the chlorine level back up slowly ... but how slow is slow? How much bleach can I safely add without getting the staining back? The local pool store keeps telling me to shock to get the cloudiness out of the water, but it hasn't been 2 weeks yet. I've also added polyquat to keep the algae at bay and I haven't had any this year. Should I try to get the chlorine up before getting the iron staining under control or do you have any other suggestions? Thanks in advance ... this is a great forum with lots of great reading!
