Too much iron? Brown water

Postby Kelly » Sat 09 Jul, 2005 07:37

Anyone know what to do about having too much iron in water. We have a well which has too much iron in it and I think I accidently added the well water in the pool instead of the soft water we have. Now the water is brown. I added a bottle of metal remover from the pool supply store that they gave me, but see no difference. Our water was crystal clear until I added some water last week. Now we can't even use the pool.

Get the water tested if the Iron is over 2ppm you are going to have to treat it with a different method than the metal remover. Most metal removers only treat up to 2ppm of Iron. So a pool store with free water anaylsis would be a good starting point. More queston post it here!

Good Luck,
