Last test came out to ha e 0.1ppm iron, 0.2ppm copper. Wonder if this is something to worry about now. I didn't do test myself, took it to d tested, but wanted go see just in case, what I would need to do. I will test myself in the next few days.
In all my other tests, and those I had tested, iron and copper were always 0.
No new water was added, except rain I guess. Tap water has no iron and no copper.
Could it be from starting to heat spa?

Do you know where it came from?

I see you have a Nature2 for some reason. Are you using that? Guess what the "minerals" actually are in there?

yeah, your getting up there in unwanted minerals there. I can assume the copper comes from the Nature2Fusion (we do NOT recommend using minerals in pool systems). As for the Iron, do you fill from a well? Iron is fairly common in wells, but I don't know if it might be coming from the Nature2 or not?

I would take another water sample into a pool store to test it. The test could have been contaminated at the pool store.
