I am on day 6 of my conversion. I have so far used 24 bottles of 1.42 gallons of bleach and we are still green and not there. I am very discourarged but am knee deep in it now and cannot turn back. I am heading to the Wal of Mart right now to buy more and hope I am not accused of being a meth lab (again).
In the post by Jason on how to covert, the only level he said to watch was PH. Am I supposed to be watching the other levels (alkalinity, hardness, stablizier) too while this conversion is going and keeping them up to par? This is not stated in the directions and I have not been.
Also, my catridges in my filter are 2 years old. I have replacements for them when this is all over (fingers crossed) but since they are so old, they are barely filtering. So I took the "column" out and this has created a very fast current situation with barely any filtering. Is this okay?
