Seeing iron in your Michigan swimming pool water is something that no homeowner ever wants to deal with. However by using the right product, removing iron from swimming pool water can be very easy, and leave little for the homeowner to do. The best product to use to remove iron from swimming pool water is Ferri-Iron tablets.

These tablets just need to be added to the pool water where they will then decolorize any part that has been discolored by iron, manganese, or any other minerals. After the stain has been decolorized, it will then be removed by the filter as well as through charge neutralization and flocculation. Ferri-Iron tablets are extremely safe as they don’t contain any toxic ingredients, as some other iron removal products do. They also don’t contain any caustic materials nor chemicals that will corrode the metal or lining in your swimming pool. Ferri-Iron tablets are also free from diatomaceous earth, alum, and any other chemicals; they are also completely water-soluble.

One of the best things about Ferri-Iron tablets, that makes them different from any other iron-removing swimming pool product, is that they don’t affect the pH or the chlorine levels in swimming pools. Ferri-Iron tablets do work best with a well maintained sand filter, so it is important that you make sure your filter is turned on and is in proper working condition.

Ferri-Iron tablets need to be added to the skimmer baskets in the pool, about 1 tablet for each 3,000 gallons of pool water. When the pool is very large and they have multiple baskets, the tablets must be distributed evenly throughout the baskets. The tablets should be added over a period of several hours, with the filter turned on the entire time. Once all of the tablets have been used in the water, the filter needs to be backwashed within 18 – 24 hours of the final treatment.

When there is a very large presence of iron in the water, additional treatments of Ferri-Iron tablets might be required. In these cases, the filter will need to be backwashed within 24 – 48 hours of treatment, and the process can be repeated.

Seeing green water in your Michigan swimming pool that’s caused by excess iron can be very alarming to swimming pool owners. But with Ferri-Iron tablets, it doesn’t have to be. Drop in a few tablets, wait for them to do their work, and then just wait until your swimming pool is clear and ready for a swim again. Ferri-Iron tablets truly are a homeowner’s best friend!

Ferri-Iron Tabs are swimming pool water treatment tablets that help eliminate the discoloration caused by iron and manganese.

They have been formulated for use in all filters EXCEPT diatomaceous earth filters.

These double-action tablets have been formulated to help decolorize water that has been colored by IRON or MANGANESE. These discoloring insoluble materials are removed from the water by charge neutralization and flocculation.

This non-toxic formulation is completely soluble in water and contains no caustic or corrosive chemicals, diatomaceous earth, alum or any chemicals that will alter the pH or chlorine level of the water.

Directions: Make sure pool water has a pH of 7.2-7.6, and contains a measurable amount of chlorine by adjusting with chemicals as necessary. Chlorine will not effect the Ferri-Iron Tab action on Iron or Manganese. Make sure the pool filter is in good operating condition and has been turned on.

Drop 1 tablet for each 3000 gallons of pool water into the skimmer basket. In large pools that have multiple skimmers distribute the tablets.

For best results, add the required tablets over a period of a few hours. Keep the filter operating. In order to permanently improve the water quality, the filter must be thoroughly back-washed within 18-24 hours after treatment.

In pools that have severe problems, repeat dosage and back-wash procedures after 24-48 hours.

In order to prevent a recurrence, when adding make up water and 1 tablet for each 3000 gallons or less of fresh water.
