I know this would have been a lot easier if I had waited until Spring, but we had an algae problem that we just couldn't get rid of with baq. Since we weren't really able to use the pool anyway, I decided to go ahead and try the conversion using the method described here.
So it was less than a week since I'd last added baquacil. There was a lot of yellow goo. But after about a week, that's all gone now. The water has been very clear but still has a slight green or yellow tint.
However at this point I feel like I've stopped making progress. For the last 3 or 4 mornings, I've been right around 7 ppm FC and 3.5 CC. Since the water is looking so much better, every morning I expect to finally see more FC holding. Is this anything to be concerned about? Does anyone have a guess on how many days I have left?
