    TDS, IRON, COPPER

    What would be a level of iron in the pool where a drain and refill would be required? i feel sequesterants are a band aid to the problem. I want to get rid of the underlying problem to where sequesterants are not utilized.

    Sequesterants....

    All my pipes are pvc, except for the gas pool heater. I do have a water softener but don’t use it to refill water loss due to evaporation. I don’t know if the water softener would handle filling a pool. It would probably have to regenerate quite often ( I assume) and probably take a lot of salt...

    I have added not 1 chemical to my pool in 6 years but salt and acid. And of course my city fill water which claims low to almost no iron. Tried the polyfill in the skimmer for 3 days while water had the greenish tint and not a bit of stain on it. A little history I drained a quarter of the pool...

    Update!!!!!! After reading so much on algae and why I’m having a problem I came across a thread on metal stains and how vitamin c will take out iron stains rather quickly. So I got home crushed up some vitamin c and put it on the floor of the beach area. Within seconds the stains that were...

    Don’t know if you will be really to tell but here they are. All parameters were correct when starting slam, using TFTestKits reagents, and following slam process . Must be hard to see the darker areas I’m referring to.

    Pressure washing for algae?

    I was thinking wouldn’t it be a lot easier to get in the pool ( still full of water)with a pressure and try to pressure wash the algae off from the walls and floors? It seems hard for me to do a good job with a wire brush on the pole. If you haven’t guessed I am dealing with mustard algae that...
