We've been fortunate that our pool water has nearly always looked good, thanks to the TFP forum and Taylor's test kit. The other day we were shopping at our military exchange and they were having a great sale on Clorox bleach. I've been wanting to try the BBB so I picked up several bottles of Clorox. My wife, who has lots of allergies and only uses fragrance free detergents and absolutely no bleach, looked at me like I had grown horns. I explained to her what I wanted to do and told her not to worry, I know what I'm doing and I have hundreds of experts standing by in case I screw it up. She threatened me not to mess up our good looking pool water.
So I turned off the SWG (I figured I'd give it a rest for the remainder of pool season), and did the BBB. I love it, my wife loves it, and the pool loves it. Life is good.
Now I haven't yet told her about adding borates, but I'm in the process of doing that (1/2 done). My wife also has eczema and I'm hoping the borates gives her some surprising relief.
This forum rocks!
