    Pour bleach through skimmer?

    Hi, I am new to the BBB method

    One question I can't seem to find an answer for, is it OK to just pour the liquid bleach into the skimmer rather than directly into the pool?

    Welcome to TFP!

    You can, but I don't recommend it. The best thing to do is to pour into the pool slowly in front of a return jet while the pump is running. That will get it to mix in as quickly as possible with minimal risk.
