Hi everyone. I am a new member and am running in circles to get my pool up and running. I'll start with some background info.
Bought house in Nov 2006. It came with an 18'x36' pool that was already painted with a rubber base paint.
This year I decided to repaint the pool so I did the acid wash cleaning and painting.
Refilled the pool with well water, and it is apparent it has iron in it.
Had the local pool store give me a treatment package, I used Pool Stain Remover that lifted the iron, then used Pool Magnet to collect the iron. After that I used Sparkle_Up that added help in the sand filter to catch the metal. I then had the Sand changed.
So here we are today, water changing to that brown again.
First idea I had was the pool company waited 3 weeks to come change my sand, from the time of the initial iron treatment, I thought that was not good.
So now the pool is actually staining, but for about 3 weeks, it was pristine and beautiful. I feel like I am going to have to do it all over again, stain remover, pool magnet, Sparkle UP and change the sand. Very depressing.
The pool company said I should just try the stain remover to lift it and then bring in the water for them to test it.
Looking for advice. Thanks...
