    So yeah...I kinda hate BBB now...

    I'd posted elsewhere about our short vacation recently, with a big to BBB for helping us avert a potential pool disaster.

    But I really have to say...I'm kinda ticked off at you folks as well.

    See...our vacation was to various amusement parks/water parks...and I am now TOTALLY UNABLE TO ENJOY WATER PARKS thanks to you lot.

    Day 1, we're walking past the "lazy river" thing on our way to a particular ride, and I can see the cloudiness in just 3 feet of water! It was like a giant CYA test!

    A bit later, as our first ride was coming to an end, I realized that even just the few inches of water in the bottom of our "boat" was cloudy...UGH!

    I know, I know...I and my wife and kids have been quite happily enjoying water parks for many years, with no ill effects...but I just can't do it any more.

    Curse you, BBB!

    Now THERE'S an idea...

    Some 4x4 frames, a few pond liners, couple of pumps from harbor freight, and the backyard becomes a BBB Water Park!

    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.

    I've noticed there's a growing number of us who are "complaining" about BBB!

    Yep I know what you mean. I just spent a week at the beach and I cursed the beach patrol for not using the BBB method on the beach where I had to swim, How dare the beach water look like that.

    I cringe at the site of some pools AND owners who think their pool is so clear and it's really hazy and on the verge of full blown cloudiness.

    BUT IT LOOKS SO GOOD!

    Ok... whatever.

    Thanks BBB! I still love ya!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    *heh* One of the folks in line at said water park commented about the "deep blue water". I didn't have the heart to tell her it looks like that when you view dark blue paint through cloudy water.
