I know this question has probably been on this forum 50 times, but I am going crazy trying to figure out how to fix this!
We filled our 15" round above-ground pool from our well. I knew that we had iron in our water, but being new to the pool biz, I didn't know that I had to do anything special.
When the pool was full, I tested and all levels were fine except for chlorine, of course.
So I added chlorine, and BAM- water turns instantly coffee brown with creamer!
So, I called the local pool store, they had me put in a bottle of "Pool Magnet" and told me to keep cleaning the filter.
Does anyone know if this will solve my problem? How long will this take? My daughter is just aching to swim in the new pool!
We've been cleaning the filter every 6 hours or so, and it's only lightening a little.
We're in Wisconsin, so I want this to resolve before it snows again, which shouldn't be long!
Thanks in advance for any insight into this problem!
