    couldn't be happier

    After turning to BBB last summer and just opening I couldn't be happier. I pulled off my winter cover this weekend, tested the water, and everything was spot on except for 0 TC. Added 7 121 oz jugs of 8% bleach, did an OCLT last night and it was still at 17 like it was when I tested last night. $20 to open my pool works for me. This place rocks!

    Seriously though...I vacuumed the whole thing yesterday and it's crystal clear. BBB has been one of those things that seems too good to be true and I'm waiting for the catch. I guess it's just relative to all the issues I had with my LPS. Even though they seemed to have the best of intentions.

    The only problem now is it's really cold and I don't want to turn the heater on yet!

    The catch is that it requires diligence. It's not set-it-and-forget-it. Look down at my signature.

    Oh...and you'll reconnect with a lot of friends, especially during heat waves. That can become a catch when you survey the piles of wet towels, empty cups, scattered toys...

    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!

    Yup, but I like that I actually understand what's going on with the pool and I'm in control. I like testing it and seeing them on the money. The old LPS way wasn't set and forget either, plus I was dumping chemicals and money into it left and right with nothing to show for it.

    And my gates lock pretty well...I'm hoping to keep the riff-raff out. Lol!
