I should be setting up and filling my Intex 15'x48" pool this weekend hopefully..I really am glad I "stumbled" across this forum...I really like the BBB pool method I read about...luckily I only bought one packet of pool shock which I will use after the initial fill up..then will revert to chlorine bleach bottles from here on out to keep CYA levels in check..
I also have already bought one gallon bottle of algeacide and one bottle each of Ph+, Ph- from lowes...rather than return them I will simply use them as needed until they are gone then switch to borax and baking soda thus completing the cheaper BBB method.
I do have one question tho..I also have 5 pounds of 1" tablets and a floating chlorine dispenser...bottle says 2 tablets every other day for my pool size..(4400 gallons)...the tablets take 3 or 4 days to break down bottle says....
Is it ok to use the floating tablets as maintenance chlorine and bottled bleach to shock and raise FC as needed or should I do away with the tablets and floating dispenser all together and just use bottled chlorine only? The tablets are so expensive that after this bottle runs out I dont see me buying anymore if I dont need to and I bought them online so would be expensive to return them.
Dont see a search function for this site so kinda hard to look for my answer by going through thousands of old threads one at a time ..
