Make sure that you change all filters when you make the transistion. If you are using a sand filter make sure that you change the sand in it. If you don't you will have a m-ess that looks like foam from the sea. I have done this and I know...this happened to me... You have to make sure that you get all of the non chlorine product out of all of the filtering aspects.
