I was a first time pool owner this summer and thankfully I found this site before I started the setup process. I had the clearest water all season long and never added any chemicals, just bleach on a regular basis, borax a couple times, and muriatic acid a couple times. NO ALGAE! Probably cost me $20 for the whole summer to keep the water looking awesome. Getting ready take it down now but I just wanted to share how successful BBB method was for us! I don't have my signiture, but I have the Intex easy set 12x30 with inflatable ring.
Thanks to all who helped me on this site
