I read in some other threads tonight that I should unplug the copper bars on the Intex SWG. I will do that tomorrow. Since I use Jack's Magic in my pool anyway, is it sequestering what copper is in there along with the iron from the well water?

Purple Stuff. I may be worried about nothing though. My youngest is very blonde and has missed maybe 2 days in the pool since I opened it 3 weeks ago. She hasn't had any hair color problems.

The purple stuff should sequester both, and you got a good indicator in your daughter's hair :mrgreen:

I believe the intex only produces copper when the boost button is pushed.

That's good to know. I unplugged it anyway. I don't think I've ever used the boost button anyway.
Good idea, then if we/I am wrong and it were to produce at other times, you have protection against that too.
