    Alternate method of removing baqua-****

    I also found an alternate method of removing baqua-**** from my pool. I'm using non-chlorine shock - but it seems similar to your method. I found it on, I'll let you know how it turns out, we started on Friday.

    Re: How to convert a Baquacil pool to chlorine

    While you can use lots of non-chlorine shock or can also use sodium percarbonate to get rid of Baquacil, it's a lot more expensive than using chlorine, though is a lot less colorful and is generally faster.

    Also, shouldn't the filter be cleaned after conversion, not before
