    First set of test results

    I have a 15' Intex pool and I just did my first set of testing with my new Taylor kit.

    pH 7.4
    TA 60
    FC 9.5
    CC 0
    CYA 30-40

    The water is crystal clear but its tinted green. I know tis from the fill water. We live in an area thats notorious for too much iron in the water.
    I've been collecting rusty deposits on towels and socks for three days. The water seems lighter green but not really...
    The pool store sold me something to use to "treat the metals" but I would rather try to get the iron out than just cover it up with a $40 bottle of stuff I dont understand.

    What now?
    Intex pool 15' x 48"
    Waiting on parts to set up sand filter and SWG.
    Trying to solve too much iron in fill water. Pool is beautifully clear, but greenish.

    Keep filtering and backwashing and you should be able to remove a good bit of the iron that is visible in the water.
