    I don't know of any pool service that is really BBB. BBB calls for checking the pool every day, and no one is willing to pay their pool service enough to do that.

    There are thousands of people in Maryland who use BBB. Just look how quickly WalMart sells bleach over the summer compared to the winter.

    A pool service that acknowledges bbb and can give a second opinion or diagnosis that wouldnt be recommended at a pool store (such as bbb). Is what im asking about

    Why would you want to pay someone for something you can easily do/understand/diagnose yourself?

    Plus, you've got everyone here for help with diagnosis if needed. Save your money, buy a popsicle or an iced coffee every day this summer instead. :~}

    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.

    If you are concerned about having to add bleach daily or every other day, use the money you'd use for a month of pool service and install a Liquidator. Worked for me!
