    BBB for Beginners

    Greetings, new member, first time post!

    I found your site while searching for ways to clear my algae ridden pool. We just bought a mess cover at the end of the last season, and I pulled it back to see how the water was yesterday and found a mess that I'm going to have to clean up. Through all my searching, I ended up here and am impressed with what I see already. Can't believe I didn't find you before now!

    Just purchased the TF100 test kit, because it's about time I start balancing my pool correctly and using the right tools.

    I have a question. I just read about the BBB method and I would like to start using it, although I have an inline chlorinator which I'm used to putting 3" tabs into. Since I won't be using tabs anymore, do I just leave the chlorinator turned off?

    I leave my chlorinator turned off. You can used it for vacations or if you need to raise your CYA.
