I pretty much can answer my own question by having the water checked, but I want to open the door of discussion when I get the results of my well water.
I have recently filled my new ~29000 gallon liner pool with my well. The pool builder advised me to add a bottle of "metal out" when we were about 3/4 full of water. Now that the construction phase is complete, he is telling me that I will need to add "metal out" whenever I add water to the pool.
Does this sound like a common practice without actually getting the water tested ?
I have a neighbor who has a home water filter company that said he could test my well water and let me know all that is in it... which I will try to get analyzed asap.
I assume he can tell me about the metal content ?
Will my well water consistenly produce the same test results regardless of rainfall/drought ?
What happens to be the chemical used for "metal out" so I could possibly circumvent the inflated prices of the pool store? (I did google this before starting this thread but no bueno)
I will admit I am intimidated about getting and keeping the chem levels correct, but I am determined to get the hang of it.
