    New to the forum

    Hi from McKinney Texas! New here, but have been lurking on this site and a few others for some time. I had a small 10k pool installed last year and have been using the BBB method from the beginning. Thanks to the info on this and other sites, I have never had a problem with algae, and my pool maintenance could not be simpler.
    10K White Plaster Pool Built in 2007. Hayward Pump and DE Filter, Hayward Navigator, Liquidator (Removed due to issues), Solar Blanket, BBB user.
