    Clear yellow water

    Need help, we have an Intex above ground salt water/sand filter pool. We filled it this weekend and added salt, it was very clear. It took us a day to get sand, so we didn't start the filter/generator for a day. After running it, the water has a yellow tint? Any solutions? Also it is well water.

    You have Iron in the water. As FC rises, it might start getting worse looking. Many people have it filter away in a few days, so I'd wait a couple days before investing in metal sequestrants or fumbling around trying to filter it. If it starts to look like coffee, then it requires action now.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
