i just recently opened my pool so i can get a jump start on having a clear pool this summer. baquacil was was giving me sucha a hard time last year so when i closed it, i figured when the spring time comes i'll open it up and start using chlorine. but to my suprise when reading and following the steps from here, i just want to make sure i'm doing this right. i went to the pool store and bought shock. i tried it a couple of days ago and went back and they sold me more telling me that i would need to double the dose since there was still baquacil left over. since the cost was over $30 i went to kmart and bought (2) 182 oz of regular clorox bleach. (also my dad recommended that i put bleach since he did it for many years. too bad i never listened to him in the first place.) so as of today 4:00 pm i put 32 oz of bleach and have the filter running all day and night since tuesday. i backwashed and the water was white murky mush. my water balance is fine and it's kind of greenish trying to upload a picture but the fil is to big.
