I'm sure someone else will show up here, but can I assume you're filling from a high iron content well? Have you added any chlorine? Or is this pond water?

I hope you use bottled water for drinking and cooking! Wow.

My old house had high sediment water from the well. That would have been a fun cleanup for a pool (that house didn't have a pool).

I'm right there with you. Looks identical to mine. I'm filtering like crazy and it's getting stuff out but still can't see much more than about a foot into the water. Only been a day so far. Hows yours doing after a week?

In our house I have an iron filter and softener but I can't realistically fill an 8000 gallon pool through those.
