Thread: would like to convert from Bacquasil

  1. Back To Top    #1

    would like to convert from Bacquasil

    Owatonna, MN; 15x26 oval above ground pool; 12,6000 gal.; sand filter; Artisian pump 1.0hp

    I would like to convert from Bacquasil and have read all your info. My question is ...I have drained my pool down to about 1' of water and cleaned it out the best I can. Should I clean sides and skimmer, etc. with bleach before I refill or go ahead and refill and then start the bleach process? I haven't purchased a test kit yet - can't do much until the pool is full!!

    Go ahead and refill. Get your test kit ordered ASAP, it's an invaluable tool! We recommend the TF100 from

    Order the kit before you do anything. The pool will be down for a few days, so enjoy it while the kit is being shipped. Next fill your pool up as normal. Don't worry about scrubbing at first.

    After you get the kit start the any questions you may have.

    You won't regret converting. Order a test kit, filler up and shock the left over Baquagoo out. Your filter will need to be flushed out a few times most likely.
