Hello. My pool:
18X48 6100 gallons vinyl easy set cartridge filter
Used well water to fill. Turned brownish green after shocking.
Pool store found no metals. Purchased some Vitamin C and stains came off plastic of skimmer parts.
Never having my water tested there again.
FC...14.5 because I was shocking to determine it wasn't an algae issue
CC...less than 1ppm
I am now using a sequestrant (ClearView Mineral Magnet). I don't know if it's a good one because their website is limited on info.
I vacuumed today and picked up a lot of the sediment from bottom of pool. Presently the water is yellowish to pale orange when looking at it in a white bucket. In the pool the water looks light green. The bottom looks light brown. Maybe it's stained.
What should I do next? Leave it alone and let it filter? Throw in more Mineral Magnet? How long before I continue seeing changes and not do anything? And should I return pool to shock level?
