Well I think I'm finally tired of spending tons of money and not getting what I want out of a pool so I am going convert. I just loaded my pool with baquacil shock and sanitizer to kill the algea for my daughters birthday next Saturday but I am not putting anything else in. Got my 200 lbs of sand today for replacement after the convert, will start buying my bleach when I can, and I ordered my test kit. Got a couple questions.....trying to get all the knowledge I can before the conversion takes place.
How low does the baquacil need to be before I start converting?
Most of the rest I think I have enough information from everyone here.
But after I have converted, how do I do the daily test to keep my pool between the 3-8 ppm mark for FC? seems a daily test could be expensive, or do you all use test strips for that part.
How much bleach do I expect to add to the pool each day once converted?
I am looking forward to a pretty much maintenance free summer next year? WooHoo.
