I am assuming that pool builders in general don't mention the BBB method (or anything like it) to new pool customers.
When we picked our pool builder, one of the things they pushed was how they strive to build a pool that requires as little time as possible to maintain. I am thinking how that is a good philosophy (not the main reason we chose them), as they they seemed to put real thought into their equipment and pool build to achieve this goal. But now that I have "seen the light" and understand how the BBB method is superior to achieving a happy pool, why don't more pool builders at least tell their customers about this option and the pros/cons of different maintenance approaches? In my case, the pool builder doesn't sell pool products or have a side pool maintenance service, so they don't have a vested interest in HOW we choose to maintain our pool. I can see how it's more appealing to the prospective customer to think they can just drop some trichlor tabs in and go about their business. But after reading this site, that is just a recipe for eventual problems.
Anyway, I am curious why the BBB method (or anything remotely close to it) is not more mainstream when it makes so much sense. Is it just a case of pool builders not knowing any better or not wanting to spook potential customers? Maybe some of both?
Why pool supply stores wouldn't want this info getting out is completely understandable. They don't want people buying cheaper household products or going to Walmart for stabilizer.
