    Check out this picture of BBB bliss

    I had to take a picture of what is possible with BBB. I looked at my pool this morning and it was like looking through glass. I had people at work ask me why the steps were not covered in water. The 1st step is about 6" of water, the lower step ~18" and the bottom, where the drain is, is about 7.5' deep. At night with the lights it is almost 100% clear without the little tiny particles floating around. BBB and a DE filter = bliss. BTW, this was taken with my iPhone so it actually looks better in person.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    It is a pebble finsh. I brush once a week and have a Polaris vacuum that runs daily. I also dont have a lot of trees and leaves around so normally the skimmers and vacuum are empty.
