    conversion ?

    I have access to well water. Would it be easyer to drain my pool, clean it, change my sand than to go thru the Baq. conversion process?????

    Thanks

    That certainly is an option and would probably save you a good amount of time. You might still need to SLAM the new water in case any residual baqua remained in the equipment, but avoid the whole baqua breakdown process.

    Keep in mind though we normarly don't recommend a total drain for the protection of your pool structure. So if you leave some water remaining, you might need to perform the latter parts of the conversion process.

    Thanks for the info. I have done a complete drain before and it did not cause any problems. You are right I still may have to do some conversion even tho I put no baq in last fall.
