Sometime ago, my SWG broke down and before investing (e.g., giving) more money to Pentair, I decided to try your BBB method. Skeptical, as others I'm sure, I read and reread everything (and I do mean everything) on this site about BBB. First, as suggested I bought a Taylor test kit through the TFP website. The test kit came very quickly. Plugged in the numbers using the Pool Calculator, then adjusted as instructed. Found a sale on Clorox regular bleach at my local military commissary (2/$3) and stocked up. Did everything the BBB method told me to do. After a few days of tweaking, my numbers came out just right. I never really had any major problems with my pool, and I do think that having an SWG makes pool maintenance more passive. However, I have been converted! Why everyone wouldn't adopt the BBB method is beyond me. I've decided to put off buying a replacement SWG and go with BBB for the rest of this season and all of next and maybe longer.
Y'all are awesome! All this info for free??? This website has made me a much more informed pool owner. I can't tell you how much I am indebted to you for providing this service. There should be more concerned people like you! Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!
