    Need help with cloudy spa water; use BBB in above ground poo

    Hi! I have been reading about Baqua to Chlorine conversions. I love the pretty pictures and would like to post my own, photos but don't know how. I am totally new to this forum/thread thing, but overall a decent computer user. I'm hoping to convert and become a life time supporter of TFP...

    Split off of this topic. JasonLion Keeping posting information. I just started a conversion last Sunday. I've been reading all of the Baqua to Chlorine forums. My water turned rust when adding shock the first couple of times. I've since switched to store bleach and have the typical pea green...
