Converting to BAQUACIL® CDX® System

Converting your pool into a chlorine-free, carefree sanctuary is a choice you’ll rank among the best. Simply put, the BAQUACIL® CDX® Pool Care System is one of the most easy-to-maintain chlorine-free pool care programs on the market. Making the switch is simple with a few basic steps. Check out the overview below and be sure to refer to the BAQUACIL® CDX® Pool Care Guide for additional details, including a helpful start-up dosage reference chart. Naturally, you can always get more information from your local authorized BAQUACIL® dealer about the conversion process.

How to Convert to the BAQUACIL® CDX® System:

1. Perform any necessary filter maintenance

  • Cartridge filters – Chemically clean the cartridge with Universal Filter Cleaner or replace the cartridge
  • D.E. filters – Chemically clean the filter elements with Universal Filter Cleaner
  • Sand filters – Replace the sand in the filter

2. Take a pool water sample to your authorized BAQUACIL® dealer for complete analysis. (See BAQUACIL® CDX® Pool Care Guide for water testing tips.) If your dealer finds that your pool water contains metals, add Metal Control as follows: For every 2 ppm of metals present and for every 10,000 gallons of water, use 1 bottle (1 1/4 lb.). Allow the water to circulate for 8-12 continuous hours.

3. Add Swimming Pool Sanitizer and Algistat to the pool to achieve a 50 ppm level. See chart below for dosing instructions.

4. Add the start-up dose of Oxidizer in front of skimmer. See Start-Up Dosage chart below.

5. Add the start-up dose of CDX® product directly into skimmer. See Start-Up Dosage chart below.

6. Begin twice weekly routine pool care. Refer to the BAQUACIL® Pool Care Guide for further details.
