I am really trying to stick to the BBB method and have learned a lot on this site. What I am trying to do next in standardize what I purchase to keep in my inventory. From what I have learned myself and also heard from others on this site is inconsistency is probably the biggest demon of all. Most of this is common knowledge for everyone that has been to pool school but I have some others. You can see below I have to put extra attention into maintaining the nice clean white color on my fiberglass. Please critique or comment.......
Clorox Bleach - For shocking or elevating my FC when it is too low
Mule Borax - To raise PH
Baking Soda - To raise TA
HTH Stabilizer - To raise CYA (available everywhere)
Salt - From the pool store or where ever I can find it on sale.
NC Metal Out - I have a white fiberglass pool and have to use at least one quart per month (Sometimes 2 when I shock and the metals activate the green color in my pool)
NC Stain Free - My white fiberglass pool requires I use this sometimes...........not much though when the staining on the sides is bad.
NC PhosFree / Pool Perfect - I use the one cap weekly as directed. Honestly not sure if this is doing anything for me or not.
Culator - I have used about three of these. Once again the white fiberglass pool requires I put A LOT of effort into maintaining its color. I would like to see some research on the effectiveness of this.
I recently put in the HTH skimmer mini trichlor cylinder. I am hoping this provides a nice smooth consistent dose of CYA and I do not have to add this as much.
I do not have anything for raising TH as this has always been on the high side.
I have SWG which does not seem like it works half the time. I am considering getting rid of it and going full Bleach one gallon a week.
Thanks in advance. Joe
