Hello everyone I just found this site, and I could be on here for hours. My wife got talked into the Perma-Salt system from Backyard Leisure when we bought our pool from them last May. We were told that all we needed to do was add a bag of salt, get our PH, Alkalinity, and Calcium right. Adjust the Perma-Salt system to achieve a copper level of .3, and shock the pool every other week. We haven't had any problems with Algae or anything like that. But after reading about copper ionization systems, I'm now beginning to second guess my wife's "impulse buy." Should we be using a chlorine floater, or anything else other than the shock? I really want to convert over to the BBB maintenance system, but she is dead set against it. I just don't trust it after reading that all it is, is an algaecide. Any input is appreciated. I did take a sample to the pool store today and the results were as follows.
