Firstly I would just like to say what a great forum this is. The BBB method has helped me go from a green pool to a crystal clear one. Unfortunately the pool may only get used a handful of times so rather than running the pump all the time and adding chlorine I'd prefer to do it a day or so before use. I am using a copper based algaecide and according to their instructions I can just chlorinate the pool prior to use rather than all the time.
So my question is what are the potential issues with using this approach. After slamming the pool last week it has been clear for the last 5 days with pump off and no additional chlorine added. I'm going to keep watching it to see how long it stays clear for. I'm hoping it will just stay clear given it is dosed up with algaecide.
