Hi, After 7 years as a pool owner I have just now found your site. I am so interested in switching to a BBB system pool I am almost salavating.
I think I have wasted lots of money at the pool store. I need to get a good test kit because mine is just one of the cheap little ones. The one thing I have not been able to find is while I am waiting for a test kit to be shipped to me what chemicals and what quantities should I purchase to have on hand once I get the test kit in hand.
At this time I have some fairly clear water, but I have algea growing on the sides of my pool. I have to brush the sides every other day to keep it down. I have not teted my water in about a month so right now while I am at work I can not give you any idea what the chemisty looks like. I will post it as soon as I get home this evening and take what tests I can.
I guess I will stop and buy some bleach on the way home. Is there anything else I should get now or wait until I get a better idea of what the chemistry is.
I look forward to participating on the board and learnig what it really takes to have a nice pool. Not sure if there is enough information to get a good answer yet, but I will give more information as I get it. Thanks in advance for any help.
