We'll be having a new liner installed as soon as the weather is warm enough. Here are my plans as to what to add as the pool fills. Any other suggestions?
(10,000 gallons, vinyl liner, bleach, sand filter, NO heater) I'm assuming it will take 2 days to fill.
We'll be using water out of our well which has a ton of iron in it. As the pool fills I'd like to add a metal sequestering agent. I'm leaning towards Jacks Magic Pink Stuff. As soon as the pool is full, I'll add poly 60 and some stabilizer (sock in skimmer) and continuously run the pump.
When would you add chlorine? I was thinking about waiting 2 or so days for the stabilizer to dissolve and for the metal sequestering agent to really take effect. I try to keep the ph below 7.2 during the normal course of a season.
What is the best metal sequestering agent out there for iron? What is the difference between a chelating agent and a sequestering agent?
