After my initial venture into firing the pool guy and using BBB this year (only 1 little algae outbreak due to my laziness) I now have a change on the horizon. Next week I am moving to a different home that has a SWCG pool.
I've been reading here on TFP and it sounds like I will prefer SWCG to lugging 10 gallon jugs of bleach every time I go to the grocery store. Also it sounds like I just might prefer a little more pH stability (will definitely be looking to add borates sometime soon).
Is there a downside? So far it just sounds like I get to do less work. Is that correct?
What about the other stuff that I do, like skimmers/backwash/brush pool? Same schedule or do I handle differently? Also, do I need any other test kit? I have the Leslie's Complete FAS-DPD K2006 kit now.
Any newby advice would be well appreciated. I learned enough this year to muddle through BBB, but I am defintiely looking forward to breaking my bleach habit. Sorry I don't have new pool specifics. I will get them within the next week and post again.
Best news is that I think I get to fire another pool guy. Thanks.
