    not a new owner...just new to BBB

    Hello from Michigan...I have grown up with pools and had a chemistry teacher for a father....wouldn't you think I could figure my OWN pool out?
    We live in a fairly wooded area and my pool only gets about 6 hours of good direct sun...and if you don't know Michigan...its not real warm here most of the time although we have had heat index of 98 today! yikes
    For the last 3 years we have been pouring money into our pool in the form of chemicals...never seeming to get things to stay balanced for long and contantly battling the "green monster". We were using an autochlorinator with a mineral pack (which cost us about $200 start up) ugh. After reading alot of posts and articles on this website I have decided to give the BBB method a try this year.
    Its just that I really don't know where to start. I just got my TF100 test kit so I think Im ready to go......
    Thanks in advance for all of the wisdom you will impart!
