As the title says I am new to the TFPC method. I have not updated my signature yet, as I have no set my pool up. I am planning on starting this weekend and once I get it setup I will do so.
I have a 18x52 Intex ultra frame that I bought at the end of the season and have no setup yet. I have a well for my water supply and do not have access to city water. I have lots of iron in my water and I also use a water softener. I had a pool setup several years ago and had to fight to get it clear, but anyway my question:
Should I get a test kit and get all my levels correct before attempting to clear out the rust? I know from experience once you add chlorine it will cause more iron to come out of solution. I am assuming that I want to get my Cl levels up and make the iron precipitate out so that it will be more easily filtered out of the water.
Is my assumption correct or would you go about this another way? Any chemicals I should wait to add until my water is clear?
Thank you for any suggestions.
