I found this forum on Monday, after my pool man had the audacity to say my pool was clean and I couldn't see through the green cloud to the second step. I started the BBB method and with out a water test kit, I went to Leslies, after a 15 year old with braces tried to tell me the BBB method was a hoax, and tried to sell me phosphate remover I left. I got my mur acid my bleach my borax and my baking soda for less than 40 bux. Today is now Sat and my pool is Beautiful and clear and just awesome. Hoax my a*$!
Here is my problem , I tested the water yesterday at warehouse pools, my cya levels when I started was over a 100, today its 50, my chlorine is good, ph is7.6. My water hardness is at 640 ppm. And yesterday pool store reading was 565. I live in Houston where you could crack nuts with our water. And the pool store is saying for me to drain the pool 50% and refill. Would yall recommend that? I m new to the BBB method but after seeing the results I'm so sold ill do what ever you guys think. Yall tell me to smoosh cat poop and Viagra and put it in a skimmer , I will. .
My pool is 25000,
With a rock water fall
I hope this info will help with any advice you give me.
