    Newbie from Iowa

    Good morning. We just moved into a home in Iowa (from Texas) and have an inground pool. I ran across this site searching for ways to convert from Baq to Chlorine and liked what I saw. I'm looking forward to a sparkling clean pool and learning a lot here. My goal is to have it sparkling by next week when my kids come home from camp.

    Buy a lot of bleach and get started asap, and you should be ready for swimming next week! If you have not found it yet, this Pool School article takes you through the conversion process step by step.
