I am using well water and have Very, Very high Iron. While I have the water cleared up, it is staining the side walls. GLB Stain magnet works great, as does Muriatic acid, or rubbing with Vitamin tablets, but I keep having to apply it.
While one of the Chemistry articles here say to only solution is to drain and refill with 'good' water I really don't have that option.
I recently saw an U-Tube video on a home made Iron Filter. I have also read numerous articles saying the same method
Basically they took a 5 gallon bucket, put a fill tube on the bottom and couple of drain holes in the lid. They then filled it with Poly Fill for "stuffing pillows'. The poly fill removed was brown with the iron! No surprise but does this really remove the iron?
My question is has anybody used this and does it really work? I don't mind running this for a long time to eventually remove it all.
I have an in-ground, concrete bottom, fiberglass walls about 23,000 gallons.
