I have a friend with a Baqua pool. We've been talking about the problems she will eventually run into and I've encouraged her to convert to chlorine. Pointed her to TFP and the many excellent real life stories of conversions with happy endings. I offered to help and stand by while she and her husband tackle this task.
Yesterday I had an e-mail from her saying she was going to visit the nice lady at the pool store, the one who had suggested she add Pristine Blue to her Baqua pool because it works so well in her spa, to find out how to do the conversion.
I guess some horses you can't even lead to water . . .
So now I'm wondering, what advice do pool stores give when asked about converting? I have visions of her being told that this is not a job for homeowners, that it requires professional intervention and treatment, and it'll cost $1,000 or whatever.
Have any of you ever asked a pool store about converting?
