Hello, I'm new to the forum and I have a question. I've read on two or three sites that say I should drain my pool completely and put fresh water and salt into the pool. Then on two other sites I see all should be fine without draining it. Call me a nervous nelly but I'm just trying to make sure everything will be fine and that I won't cause an early death for a SWCG. My equipment includes a hayward S166T sand filter, a doheny 3/4 hp pump and motor, and 7500 gallon pool.
My chemistry as of right now is:
Borax: ~30 ppm
The only chemicals that have been used in the pool is bleach, power powder plus, algaecide, floculant, borax, dry acid, baking soda, and PH up.
Is that safe to go ahead and get and install the intex krystal clear salt water system. The only reason I'm really interested is because it's only 100 dollars and we go through that much chlorine in one summer. Any help is much appreciated and if any other information is needed I'll do my best to help.
