    Just curious..........

    Just curious as to why it is best to add chlorine & muriatic acid slowly?

    Switched over to BBB at end of June.....purchased my test kit........pool is sparkling clean & smells so fresh.......even with the continuous 100+ degree days we have been having here in Oklahoma!
    Gunite pool. Pool = 21,500 gallons w/ a hot tub = 606 gallons that overflows into the pool. Of course when weather is hot I do not turn the hot tub on...but continue to let it overflow into pool [because it looks nice!] Converted from Pristine Blue to BBB at the end of June, 2011. SunRay auto vacuum. StaRite Sand Filter. LOVE BBB! It is so simple & easy & inexpensive!

    To me, it's best to add it slowly because I don't like it to splash on me!

    Twenty-four 100 degree days here so far, and counting. 105 predicted for Sat and Sun.

    Both are heavier than water and will settle on the bottom if you don't allow time for circulation to mix them. With a gunite pool, the chlorine isn't a huge concern, but the MA is.
