I'm about to enter my 3rd season with a pool, and am planning on 'the change' from Baquacil to Chlorine. One problem: myself and my son are pretty sensitive to Chlorine; we tend to break out at almost any Chlorine pool we've been in.
I do have a spa with an Ozonator & Ion system (yes, it had Baquacil at one time); we use VERY little Chlorine with it (under 1 TSP/month of crystals), and it doesn't bother us...the latest reading was FC=.2 (pool store recommended .5-1.0); CC=.6 (pool store recommended 0.0-0.2); TC=.8. We had to shock it after that, of course, but our skin has been fine...
SO I guess my question is - can we expect to have a 'mild' enough system with BBB not to have skin problems all summer? OR should I consider SWG? or any other suggestions?
Please be honest, brutally straightforward, whatever...I'm definitely a newbie at Chlorine, and although Baquacil was great the first year, I can't deal with all the slime/mold/hundreds of dollars to treat it.
Thanks for any help!
P.S. I can make a new topic, but I'll also ask at some point how to open with Chlorine after closing in Oct. with Baquacil.
