    This is what BBB stability brings me

    Hello All,

    My pool been TroubleFree for so long. Have not superchlorinate for so long.
    Yesterday my pool got its new awning/shade and the amount of dirt I have to content with is a fun factor for testing.

    The old frames were steel. Lots of water enter the frames hollow. Lots of dust stuck and turn to mud.
    Lots of corroded steel debris.

    I know my water been stable due to my learnning at BBB University and I am only needing to remove particles and not organic problem,
    here is the result..........

    [attachment=1:vap3nmyo]2 - Awning frame changed to stainless steel.JPG[/attachment:vap3nmyo]

    [attachment=0:vap3nmyo]3 - Rust from old steel frame - only shown 20% of it.JPG[/attachment:vap3nmyo]


    I was betting I will need 8 x 4.7 hours = 38 hours to get 8x turnover and get pool clean again.

    35,000 GL pool. In Ground. Concrete with all white ceramic tiles. Outdoor but shaded.
    Approx 36 ft by 15 feet. 2HP Hayward Super Pump, Hayward Sand Filter with Zelbrite ( Zeolite ), Hayward Cartridge Filter, Aquamatic Silver+Copper Ionizer ( suspended use since Oct 2008 ), Prozone Ozonator, 2 gram/hr, Analog Flowmeter on pipe

    9PM same day, 90% steel rust been captured.

    Water look like this...............

    [attachment=2:210fgbr4]Water 1 - 9 PM Day 1 water started to get dirty.JPG[/attachment:210fgbr4]

    Bombed to 10 PPM chlorine....................


    Can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring

    [attachment=1:210fgbr4]Water 2 - 11PM Day 2 or 13 hours later - recovery taking place - 10 PPM superchlorinated.JPG[/attachment:210fgbr4]
    Dang, recovery is so fast. Not sparkling yet but much faster than I anticipated for a 13 hours pumping



    [attachment=0:210fgbr4]Water 3 - 3PM Day 2 or 17 hours later slowly getting better.JPG[/attachment:210fgbr4]
    Few hours later...........17 hours to be exact from 9PM last nite
    I am very happy. I never actually got green water for two years and when I did, it was algae, this time its particle
    and much easier and faster to clean. Indeed BBB University is AWESOME !!!!!!!!!

    Sparkling is good but do you have access to a metal test; specifically and iron test? With all of that rust floating around some of it must have dissolved and is now is suspension. You might need to be careful about iron staining...

    I dont have metal test kit. I shall see what I can find. The old steel awning frame been dropping rust here and there for the past 2 years and when not vacuumed in time it stained the tile .

    Thanks for the heads up.

    40 hours later.........

    I think it will need another 1 day to regain its full sparkling glory.
    The last percentage needs lots of time.
