    Baquacil to SWG with Frog Cycler Conversion

    That falls in line with what I'm doing now. I've worked on getting getting my pH up today and finished installing my SWG. I did get my CYA level up to 60 and I added my salt today. Almost there!

    Baquacil to SWG with Frog Cycler Conversion

    Today I made a lot of progress. I was able to get my sand changed and plumb in the SWG. I plan on wiring in the controller tomorrow. Don't worry, I'm not going to start it up just yet. I'll wait till you guys tell it's time. I stopped and picked up my salt today and my CYA and have started...

    Baquacil to SWG with Frog Cycler Conversion

    I have a dumb question. What's the best way to test the salt level in my pool? I haven't put any salt in it yet but I'm curious if there is some salt in the water by default. I'm going to get salt tomorrow and I want to make sure I get enough and if I need to pick up a salt test kit.

    Sounds good. It'll be the weekend before I can change the sand. Can I start on bringing the CYA up before I change the sand or should I wait?

    Baquacil to SWG with Frog Cycler Conversion

    I haven't got to take a full set of tests yet but I did run out and test FC just now. It's still eating up chlorine at a high rate. My FC level was down to 4 from this morning which was at 11 and I dumped in a half gallon. I was able to find more chlorine so I've got about 12 gallons at the...

    Baquacil to SWG with Frog Cycler Conversion

    Day 4: FC this morning was at 11 so I added a little over 1/2 gallon of Chlorine. The clarity of the water is about as good as it can get. I though I'd get an early start this morning and go get more chlorine just in case I didn't have enough. Well I guess folks have figured out that pool...

    Day 3: FC level was at 8 this morning. I added another gallon of Chlorine which brings me up to a total so far of 21 gallons of the 12.5% Chlorine I've used. Water is clear but still not completely there yet. I suspect at the rate it's going that sometime tomorrow the water will be back to normal.

    I am testing a lot. Nearly every hour and then 1st thing (after coffee ☕) in the morning. I'm anxious for the sun to come up so I can see what it looks like this morning.

    Baquacil to SWG with Frog Cycler Conversion

    It's getting easier to bring the FC up much closer to 15ppm now. I dosed it this morning and when I just checked I was at 13ppm. I added more chlorine and will check again in an hour or so. Yesterday I couldn't even get the FC out of single digits.

    Day 2- This morning my FC was 7. I adjusted as directed by Pool Math. Water is starting to clear a little. I can see the 3rd step today. I also backwashed and there's definitely some nasty looking stuff coming out when I do. Been seeing other crud in the water that I assume is coming from the...

    Baquacil to SWG with Frog Cycler Conversion

    Am I doing this right? Using the TF-100 kit, I'm adding 10ml water pulled from a foot down under the waterline. I add a heaping scoop of the R-870 powder and put in on my speed stir and it turns pink like it says it should. I then start adding the R-0871 solution one drop at a time until it...
