    Just started the conversion to chlorine using bleach

    I just started the conversion to chlorine using bleach. I tested for ph as noted in conversion process and ph was 7.5, then just added my first 420 ounces of chlorine bleach. Pool was clear on start. Noticed a slight green tint when bleach added. I have read about the changing colors, so just wondering what to expect next.

    Re: Newbie switching from Baquacil to Chlorine

    Could be lots of colors and gunky stuff. Some conversions aren't that dramatic, but .........take pics!
