Hi TFP Friends,
Well, I will soon be undertaking the Baqua to Chlorine challenge like many have before on this site. Just bought the TFT100 test kit and am itching to start. We bought our house last August and went through a bunch of expensive baqua chemicals and still had white mold. I will be confirming this with measurements, but I believe my pool is 25,000 gallons. It is inground with a vinyl liner and a sand filter.
I know how much everyone loves pictures on this forum, so I plan to document this process well. I've included a picture of the pool from last summer just to whet your appetites (this is as clear as it got)!
A few questions for you experts before I begin:
I have time off April 16th-20th so I will be able to dedicate some time to the conversion. I'm in CT so it will probably get to about 65 degrees during the days and back down to 45 degrees at night around this time. It has been warmer as of late, but these are the average temps. Do I need warmer temps, or will this be an okay time to do the conversion?
Will I need anything else (besides the test kit) and a whole bunch of bleach, and eventually some replacement sand for my filter? I just want to make sure I've got everything ready to go before the conversion.
Will I be running my filter non-stop (besides the occasional stops for backwash/rinse) during this process?
Thanks in advance for your support and I look foward to sharing this conversion with all of you.
