Although we are now going toward the "cold" months, I still leave in a location where cold is in the middle 70's .
I just started a new era of my pool (thanks to this forum) using the BBB method.
What would you suggest for algae prevention ? In the past , when I was completely illiterate and was not always attent to my clorine level, I would get algae every minute, so I guess is the warm weather and constant exposure to the sun that contributes to their growth. Should I just use Borax , and how much ? I used the pool calculator and it gives me 22 lbs to raise the borates from 0 (I am assuming it's ZERO ) to 30 .
I still have a couple of bottle of Algaecide ( non metal ) but I just feel like my pool is finally "disintoxicated" from all the chemicals that I used in the past, that I want to keep it as chem-free as possible.
