    Another testament to BBB

    The pool is about 6 months old, and I have been maintaining it during the winter. My numbers are all in range except for my TA and FC. My TA is a tad high at 90, but I am working on lowering it. As soon as I get it down, I get to use the borax I have been stockpiling for the last few months!

    My FC is also just a bit high at 6. I just turned on my salt cell for the first time, so I am still fine tuning the percentage.

    I've only been to a pool store once, and only to buy a smaller brush!

    Only thing BBB won't fix are those distinctive shadows on the bottom of the sparkling clear pool.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Wetsuits? Nah, if we had 70 here right now I know there would be some swimming going if you just meant suits...
