Greetings to all,
My pool is green and has been that way for about two months, and the guy at the pool store sells us more baquaxxx and a whole lot more of chemicals, and we still have not been able to swim this season. So I came to this forum ready to ask for help with baquaxxx, and I start reading about this BBB and SWG and I had no clue what it was. Now, I think about all the money I spent on baquaxxx all these years, and it makes want to go to the pool store and ask them to give it back (riiiight, hehe).
So I am ordering an Aqua Trol and I intend to start the conversion to SWG in a week or so. I have a couple of questions:
1. How many gallons of bleach to kill the baquacil and the algae in a 12,000 gal pool?
2. Once I get it to maintain the proper chlorine and stabilizer levels, then it needs about 320 lbs of salt, according to the Aqua Trol installation manual. But the pool will be already topped off in chlorine from the bleach. Does adding all this salt to the chlorine cause any harm to the 'trol? Is this the proper way to do it?
