  1. I'm told I need a hobby and your posts are as good as any...
  2. Thanks RDspaguy! It's moot at this point. After I posted the question, within an hour I had decided to go ahead and break out the new Ahh Some I had and went to town purging and draining. Fortunately, only a small amount of yellowish green appeared on some of the foam bubbles and I got it drained and flushed. Refilling took less time than I recalled from the first time, only about an hour and a half, and I just booted back up the tub and WOW I forgot what totally clean water looks like. The old water (only one month old, mind you) would turn white with bubbles--they'd clear out after about 15 seconds of jets turning off, so I didn't worry, but this is pure clear. Now on to balancing the water, I have a recent tap water test from my dealer so I'll start with that. Now I'm off to re-read the notes a few dozen times to try to fully understand the process. I appreciate all your posts over the years, I think I've scanned over most of them over the last few weeks! 🙂
  3. I got a new Bullfrog R6 a month ago exactly and started the chlorine based @ease inline smartchlor/mineral cartridges-dealer installed. All seems to be going well but since starting I've done enough research around here to know I want to switch to a manual method of adding straight chlorine based on usage. Instead of switching to a new smartchlor cartridge (first one is used up) today I switched to adding dichlor (until the CYA levels are correct then bleach after). I'm hoping I don't need to dump the water since it's clear and perfectly balanced at the moment. The water tests indicate a high level of total chlorine and a very low level of free chlorine. So far I've put in one ounce of dichlor granules (it's a 351 gallon tub) and half hour later still reads as low (.5 ppm) free chlorine. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
