I filled my pool with our well water and a lot of iron did come out. I have been working on it and have gotten most of it out by vacuuming and stirring it up and changing the filter. There is still some in there. Is it dangerous for the kids to be swimming in it?


It is probably safe for swimmers to get in the water. The only real risk is the staining that the metals can leave behind. A metal removing chemical can aid in removing the metals as well.
