    Welcome!

    Iron removal goes like this: Add chlorine. Watch the pool get worse looking. Filter the Iron out with paper towels or pillow stuffing.
    Look at the pictures and see how simple it is. Doesn;t mean fast, but it is simple.

    Just got Taylor-2006 Test Kit. Want to verify what I should add.

    If the stuff gets really bad, you can even vacuum the rust particles up and then backwash them away.

    Could you fill out your signature? It helps us make recommendations if we know how big the pool is and what equipment you have. Instructions.

    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!
