    War and the BBB Method

    Hello!

    Several years ago I deployed overseas, returned home and found a pool (20x40, 30,000 IG Vinyl) in my back yard . My wife wanted me to serve as pool boy for my new assignment. I researched and found the BBB method and life was good , but then...I deployed again, this time to Iraq , and when I returned just before Christmas I found a new loop lock cover over the pool and life was good and then....the spring came and my wife told my she had an affair with the pool store and now insist that I use hockey pucks and the "stuff the pool store gave me to make it blue"

    I opened the pool today with the BBB method, and sent my wife to go live with the pool store,
    I hope they are happy.

    Pool School helps me maintain my 13,500G 24' x 48" ASP with Sand Filtration using a TF100 Test Kit and Pool Calculator.
    Remember, the Shock Process should be followed until : 1. CC is less than 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    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.
