I've been reading a lot about the Baquacil to chlorine conversion on this forum. I can't wait to have a much less troublesome pool after it's all said and done.
I ordered the TF-100 XL test kit on Tuesday. Looks like it will be here tomorrow! It looks like I'll be starting the process Friday afternoon after work. I bought sixty 121 oz 8.25% bleach bottles from Costco a couple days ago. I kind of have a feeling that may not be enough, but we'll see. I'll be trying my best to test every hour and top up to 15 ppm over the weekend.
Does the TF-100 XL test kit come with enough reagent for all of the testing I'll be doing and then some after the conversion? I saw in the description it was commonly used with Baquacil conversions.
Also, when should I stop adding chlorine every hour or so and focus on when the sun is not shining on the pool such as the evenings? I've read some people start this when the FC loss is only a few ppm with each test.
I have a 30 foot diameter round, 4 foot deep above ground pool with a vinyl liner. So roughly 21,000 gallons of water. Right now there is a slight oxidizer residual and a sanitizer level of about 30 ppm according to the test strips but you know how reliable those are.
Here are some pictures of all the bleach and the pool right now. I'll be sure to post plenty of pictures of the pool during the conversion as this thread is worthless without them.
This picture below is a better representation of the pool's cloudiness.
Thanks in advance!
