Before I found this wonderful/useful website/forum I had decided to change from Baquacil to Chlorine (on Baqua for about 3 years and went cloudy - suprise) I had started to convert by adding 3 lbs of dichlor (24FT round above ground 4 ft deep). Pool immediately changed color and scummed up top, about an hour later I found this site !! Yes, call me a dummy, I sure did. Anyhow, I decided to try to do the only thing I was relatively certain would unscrew my screw-up. I drained the pool down to about 1/8 inch (empty in other words) cleaned out the sand from filter and replaced sand, cleaned all hoses as best could and started refilling. (sorry for the long story but want to get as much detail covered where I've been) I have downloaded Pool Calculator for my IPhone and am in process of getting chlorine bleach and other supplies gathered, and yes, I ordered a TF100xl last night.
All that out of the way, is there anything I need to be mindful of or any suggestions of the best course of action to get this thing started ?? Just like a new start-up or opening from winter storage?? I tried to check other topics and all I found seemed to refer to converting without draining, I ASSUME that draining will be a quicker change-over but I also know the spelling of the word assume.
Any words of wisdom, suggestions, or even criticism would be appreciated and heeded.
Thanks for your help.
