Started my conversion process on Monday, August 10, 2015. Today, Thursday, August 13. I finally saw a faint pattern on the bottom of my pool. I never did see a "plume" of colors but my cartridge filter rinses out a lot of "brown muck" every time I clean it. I am heading out this morning for more bleach. I have used 37 gallons of 8.25%. My counts this morning were:
FC-9 (down from 13 last night)
I feel like I am heading in the right direction. Is it safe for me to get in the pool to vacuum? I have been brushing the sides and as far as I can reach with a brush and vacuum. Staying the course.
