I signed up for an account a few days ago and have been reading the threads on the conversion from EcoSmarte to the TFP process.
I have to say I am very impressed with the knowledge of the people on this website.
I actually had no plan of making the conversion until I read about the lack of sanitation from the EcoSmarte system on this site.
I wish I had found this site 2 years ago, it would have saved me a lot of money and headaches.
Anyway, I have the test kit ordered and it should be here tomorrow.
I want to get everything I need prior to starting the conversion.
I had tested the water on Monday but I am not confident with the readings as I was using the same test kit from last year.
I am pretty sure the copper is >.7 and PH is < 6.8. (I have since turned the EcoSmarte off)
The water is clear right now. We just replaced the zeobrite (another serious mistake) in the filter with sand.
I have 6 bottles of 8.25% bleach. I am assuming I may need a lot more based on the SLAM process I read from azgirl's post.
- what brand of metal free do you recommend?
- Is the first step to reduce the Metal? or raise the PH?
- We had removed the chlorine tab feeder when we bought the EcoSmarte, will I need to replace it?
- What else do I need to have on hand when I start this tomorrow afternoon?
