I'm just about to burn off the last of my trichlor pucks - trying to bring up my CYA from a fresh pool fill.
After that, I'm going to give the BBB a go. I wanted to know if BBB'ers would share their habits - personal experiences of what works well and what mistakes they've made. It definitely sounds to me like the way to go, but my read of it is to just get into a routine and stick with it.
My initial plan is to have a rubbermaid storage container full of 4-8 12.5% gallons from the pool store sitting outside of the pool shed (hesitant to store in the house or the shed). Throw in some kind of a 16-32 oz measuring cup to easily guestimate the amount of bleach to pour over the return after testing.
I hope to be able to test/add bleach every night - but I'm sure that I will miss nights (work/kids/etc). I figure once you get into a grove, you can have a pretty good idea of how much to add (based on weather, bather load, etc)
Just trying to get a feel for what people actually do, and still avoid the pool store - THANKS!
