Ok so maybe it's just my imagination but for some reason out BBB water has a sweet taste to it. Anyone know what's causing that? Numbers are all perfect.

If one does not taste their pool water, one cannot tell if it's suhweeeeet!!!

Perhaps they're putting high fructose corn syrup in the chlorine now. They put it in everything else!

Has your pool gone through a bout of odd colors? Perhaps someone tried the "lime jello in the pool" thing.

--- actually, I don't know what that would do. Just a side comment from a Robert A. Heinlein novel ---

Can I test for that? Is there a problem if its high?
I figured you could, but youll have to see what your kit has. I don't suspect you do, I just wondered if you have soft water. Sometimes, soft water has a "sweetness" to me.

You can buy a test for iron, but you can usually have the local pool store test it for you. You may have to ask them to do it, but they usually can.

What is your fill water source?
