I am planning on doing a conversion from Baq to BBB before I close up for the season.
Some background is:
we inherited this pool in January when we bought this house. We really like it but it has been a headache and extremely expensive.When we opened it there was a container of Baquacil in the shed, so we assumed that is what we were using and went to the "pool store" to get some direction. We promptly emptied our wallet- and went home to work on this new venture. We were instructed to use test strips, which have never agreed with the pool stores findings. I took the water to b tested weekly until I got used to what I was suppose to be looking for. Every week I openedup my wallet for them to rob me again. My DH told me just stop going to the pool store- Well I wanted a safe pool for my children so I started to check on line for cheaper chemicals. While trying to find some cheaper chemicals,
I wandered into Pool solutions and read so much- but could not post. Iwas so excited to see there was a way we would be able to keep the pool. (I had spent close to $700. in about 3 months)
I finally found a link to another site and then someone directed me to this site that has more posters.
My question is this:
I have never tested water before (except those Baq test strips that are $10 of worthless)
I was going to order Dave's kit- but when I was on www.lesliespool.com I saw a test kit that was $46.99 .
I need to order a new winter cover and also a brush and I am already paying that shipping charge- oh excuse me the handling fee. Is this one compatible with what I plan on doing- the BBB conversion?
I will order Daves kit with extra regeant- if you all say it is exactly what I need
Ohh here are the specifics that I will put in my signature in a minute:
18x33 AG vinyl, we are told 15,000 gal., Hayward DE filter, Turtle Polaris,
Thank you all so much for all the help
