Hi, I'm new here. I hate to ask so many questions right out of the gate, but I am totally at a loss as of what to do with our pool. A little background....We bought our pool in late July last year and only swam about 4 weeks. It came with a start up kit of Baquacil, which I had no idea how to use, but I read the directions and did the best I could. Before buying the pool the manager had told my husband and I he would explain everything about the chemicals and the filter, and even tell us how to close it down for the winter so that when we opened it up in spring it would be sparkling clear. Well, once we bought the pool they were too busy to answer our questions and neither of those things ever happened.
We bought a house in November and had our pool taken down and we put it in storage. We just had it reinstalled and slowly filled it over the course of a week and a half. We used our well, oops! I guess that was a no no (first time we've ever had a well). We were told buy the installer it shouldn't be a problem. So after reading a little info on here I see we may have an iron issue. What would I have to do to correct it?
I have yet to start chemicals since we just finished filling it. I have no idea where to begin! BBB sounds great and I would love to go that route, but I have no clue how to even start the process? Is it safe for children with eczema? Can it be used with our filter? We were told we could only use Baquacil, but it's so expensive. I'm sorry to sound so clueless, but that's actually the way I feel about this whole situation. Also our water looks very dirty/green, especially from all the pollen that has settled in. I wouldn't feel as worried if the water was clear. Is there any way I can do this without calling in a professional?
Thank you so much for any advice or help you can offer. I'm almost in tears trying to figure out what to do with this pool. Our six girls are ready to swim and we just invested another $1300 having it reinstalled, but my husband is already ready to tear it down and throw it out. It looks so different from when we first filled it last year (we didn't have a well then so it filled more quickly and we didn't have the pollen issue that late in the summer). I'm the one that has to take care of the pool since my husband is the sole bread winner of the house and I really need some help. Thanks again.
