We are on our second year of BBB, Hubby thought I was crazy when I found this forum and told him what I was doing but being a stay-at-home mom I told him I wanted to try it and learn it and if it didn't work then he could go to the pool store. Thanks to TFP we have never been "pool stored" and love our sparkly pool.
Last night we had some friends over and served them and some of their friends dinner on the back deck close to the pool. The pool is gated from the deck area and higher because of the abg pool height. One of our friends (who has her own abg) stepped up on a bench to take a look at our pool and was astonished at how clean it was ... asked my husband how I did it, he just told her it was my job. Hubby was acting as their waiter while I and a friend was inside most of the night doing prep work so I didn't get a chance to talk to her about it. She has had a pool for years. I'm not sure how they maintain theirs but would love to get them started w/BBB! Hubby guesses that they use pucks but isn't sure.
Such a compliment coming from someone else who's maintained a pool for so long!
