    Does the BBB method use algaecide regularly? Not sure I've seen this mentioned for inground pools. My head is swimming with all the info btw

    Yeah, it's alot to digest in the beginning. It gets easier.

    Generally speaking, there is no need to use algaecide in your pool on a regular basis.

    Agreed. If you keep the appropriate FC levels, there is no need for algaecides or for worrying about phosphate levels (which you had not asked about ... but could be a forthcoming question )
