I am very new to this site and to pools in general. I installed my Radiant 24' last fall and jut got the heater working so I am starting to consider keeping the water optimal. I have used Baquacil to startup and have added a couple of weeks of maintenance dosages. We started using Baquacil for two reasons: (1) we live on a pond and I have the drainage going into the pond and have been told that chlorine would kill the fish in the pond, (2) my children have very sensitive skin and chlorine is very hard on them. Now that I am doing a lot of research I am seeing that Baquacil is not preferred by most of the veteran pool owners, but what choices do I have given my situation? Thanks!
