    Emptying and Replacing water?

    I just found the site and I am going to try the BBB method. I was trying the ionizers like Floatron and Eko Klor. My Floatron worked years ago then stopped working. The guy at the company said my water was probably too hard with too many metals.

    I have lived at the house for 13 years and never really drained the pool. He suggested that I need to drain at least half out and replace the water. Does this make sense?

    I probably plan on doing that this weekend but also will be switching over to BBB.

    I think the best plan is to get your test kit (http://tftestkits.net/splash-page.html) and find out where you are now before you do anything else. You may or may not need to replace water. In the meantime, read Pool School. (http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-school/) When you're done, read it again.
    Knowing your starting point will help you get where you want to go in the shortest time with the least money spent.

    First step is order a GOOD test kit. I prefer the TF-100 because its compact yet has all the tests you'll need to dose your water and in larger quantities than other kits. You can't get the proper test for *accurate* chlorine tests at Wallyworld. The only other test kit I ordered is the Taylor salt water test kit, but I don't have to use that often.
