    My conversion with a few pics

    I used baquacil last year and this year I want to use chlorine and stick with that so I began my conversion4-5 days ago.
    I only have test strips and I didnt realize it till it was way into the process, but I noticed that backwashing often has helped a ton.
    I used about 12 jugs of the 182 oz bleach from walmart and about 6 bags of chlorinated shock.

    None of this was all at once mind you, just over time.

    I think I am coming along nicely.

    see pics.

    Here is one from this morning, very foggy dreary morning



    It has a yellow green tinge at the bottom that I am not happy with.
    I am taking a sample to the store today to get it tested

    It will be much easier to finish the conversion, and to take care of the pool afterwards, if you have your own test kit.

    Re: My conversion with a few pics

    Hey all, just wanted to say its converted over and I am now a chlorine pool!

    I think I started on the 12th or the 15th of May so its taken me about 9 days to do the conversion.

    I just want to thank this board and its very helpful users and great posts!

    Re: My conversion with a few pics

    Very nice set up and thankful for the pics, especially one of the rock path to the pool. Want to show my hubby that pic as we want to do something like that. Tired of the dogs wearing paths in the yard. Figure they will use the rock path because they don't like the dew in the morning getting their feet wet.

    Anywho..... you will like the converted pool much better this summer I think!
