    Crystal Clear Water!!

    Hello all,
    I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all the advise I have found here. I started the BBB method three weeks ago with the purchase of a T-100 kit. I have been slowly adjusting everything and today i walked out to test the pool and found the water was so clear i appeared to be empty (if that makes sence) I just very very clear!! I have borax strips on order and once they arrive I will start working the borax up towards the 50 ppm mark. Thank you all once again for sharing your knowldge with us all!!!!

    So clear it looks empty makes perfect sense to me.

    There are three things to watch out for, though
    1) Even a single blade of grass will be visible from yards away, so your pool will need more vacuuming
    2) You have probably caught sparklypoolitis
    3) It will get more and more difficult to swim in any other pool

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I wish there was a BBB method to keep my house as clean as my pool.
