Help! I have an Intex 14' ultra frame pool. Just put it up yesterday (previously had just a 10' ez-set). Started filling it last night with our well water, the same water we used for the ez-set. We got the pool about 1/3 of the way full last night and all was looking good. I added the prescribed amount of chlorine let it fill for a bit longer to circulate the chlorine then shut it down and went to bed. Got up this morning to green/brown looking, you can see through it without a problem but it has a heavy hue. I know I have iron in my water, but I do not know how much. I suspect from what I read in pool school that this is what is causing the color, but I am looking for suggestions.
My ez-set did not have this issue, but I was able to fill most of it with softened water because it was so small.
I do not yet have the TF-100 kit, just an OTO so I took the numbers this morning and the FC is about 5 and PH is 7.6. Do I need to consider a sequestering agent? Will the sand filter take this out once I get that running? What do you suggest?
EDIT: I just found the water test I had done when I purchased my water softener about 9 years ago and at that time my iron level was .75 ppm so from what I have read that is not much. Again I am open to ideas. I am continuing to fill the pool this morning so I can get he water level high enough to start the filter and see if that helps any.
