Converting Your Pool from a standard BAQUACIL® System to the BAQUACIL® CDX™ System:

  1. Perform any necessary filter maintenance
    • Cartridge filters - Chemically clean the cartridge with BAQUACIL® Universal Filter Cleaner or replace the cartridge
    • D.E. filters - Chemically clean the filter elements with BAQUACIL® Universal Filter Cleaner.
    • Sand filters - Replace the sand in the filter.
  1. Take a pool water sample to your Authorized BAQUACIL® Dealer for complete analysis. (See page 8 of the BAQUACIL® CDX™ Pool Care Guide for water testing tips.) If your dealer finds that your pool water contains metals, add BAQUACIL® Metal Control as follows: For every 2 ppm of metals present and for every 10,000 gallons of water, sue 1 bottle (1 1/4 lb.). Allow the water to circulate for 8-12 continuous hours.
  2. Add BAQUACIL® Swimming Pool Sanitizer and Algistat to the pool to achieve a 50 ppm level. See chart below for dosing instructions.
  3. Add the start-up dose of BAQUACIL® Oxidizer in front of skimmer. See Start-Up Dosage chart below.
  4. Add the start-up dose of BAQUACIL® CDX™ Product directly into skimmer. See Start-Up Dosage chart below.
  5. Begin weekly routine pool care. See page of of the pool care guide for further details.
