    From Bacq to chlorine

    I am in the process of switching my 30k gallon pool from Bacq to chlorine. I am having a hard time getting the chlorine levels to stay up consistently. How long does this usually take? I have been using bleach and stabilizer chlorine tablets. Pool looks great, no cloudiness. Chlorine level when I test at night is .5 PPM. Should I jut keep adding bleach?

    I'm a rookie chlorine man. Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Have you read the process to be followed for the conversion?

    You do not usually want to be adding stabilizer (CYA, which is in the tablets) until a certain part of the conversion process. You just need to keep adding bleach until the level starts to hold.
