    Pool hasnt been open in a few years.. can they add chlorine?

    Hey everyone. 100% of my customers use chlorine. I recently got this new customer and they have a Baq. Pool. They may want to convert to chlorine, im wondering if you even have to "convert" since the pool hasnt been opened in a few years and no Baq has been added. I did not test the water YET.. i was thinking if there is nothing in the water.. i can just add chlorine like any normal chlorine pool. I could be extremely wrong which is why im posting

    thanks in advance!

    I would expect there to be some residue left in the water that will react with chlorine. It shouldn't be anything like a full conversion. Still, I would plan on some extra chlorine consumption on startup. You will also need to replace the filter media.
