    is order a water test kit,,'hope i can figure out how to use it' question is,,,,,do i need to kill my Baquacil first and get everything balanced out before i hook up my salt water system?..thanks

    Welcome to TFP!

    Yes, you need to go through the Baquacil to chlorine conversion first. It is best to do this before the SWG cell is installed to avoid having any baq gunk fouling the cell. You will also need to replace your filter media (sand, DE/grids, or cartridge).
