I just wanted to tell you the results of me using the BBB method. I just found this site a month ago and decided to use it this year. This is my first year taking care of our pool, hubby has done it past 5 years and it has always been stressful.
I got a new sand filter and installed it myself(hubby proud) and started using BBB when we took our cover off and had a green swamp! Today, it is raining and I am looking out at my CRYSTAL CLEAR water and can see the DIRT on the bottom thru the rain!!!!!!
What maddness is this, all I want to do is get that little piece of dirt out!!! Our water has never been this clear and everyone who sees our pool has said the same thing, asking if it is the filter and my hubby has said no---it's bleach and my wife!!!!!
Thank you for driving me nuts over tiny pieces of dirt in the deep end instead of hubby sending me and the kids into hiding when he was dealing with the pool! This summer is already the best one ever, my hubby and I sat out last night after our girls finished swimming and enjoyed an adult beverage looking at our beautiful clear pool!!
I am so thankful that I found this forum and all the information, you all have helped me stay on this road and we are starting to reap the rewards!!! Thank you one and all!!!! I will post some pics soon!
