So having used Baquacil for the past 2 seasons and fed up with the $$$$ wasted, I talked my wife into us switching to BBB (since I'm the one that seems to get stuck doing most of the pool maintanance). I have read as much as I can without going too bog-eyed and I'm believe that I'm ready to get started.
The last time any Baquacil was added was around last August and no more has been added since. I also left the pool cover off over the winter. I just had a look at the water and I can see the bottom, does not look pretty . There are plenty of leaves (thin ones) and detritus, for want of a better word, so I'll be hoping to remove that with our Sta-Rite Lil'Shark pool cleaner (that'll be fun ).
I'll be ordering one of duraleigh's TF100 test kits on Monday, so right now I don't have any test results to post.
Either this evening or tomorrow, I'm going to get some bleach, muriatic acid and some 20 Mule Team Borax/Arm & Hammer Washing Powder.
Tomorrow I'll also pick up another cartridge from Rec Warehouse as I intend to use the current one to catch all the crud when converting and swap to the new one after the conversion is done 8)
Well, that's my plan of attack to the pool into shape and hopefully this season I will get in it and enjoy myself - didn't last season since all I was doing was working on it If anyone has any further suggestions please let me know.
Thanks for reading,
