There needs to be a 'Success' thread stickied atop this forum! I just want to thank the people on here for their kind advice. It's thanks to them and this forum that my pool is in the best shape it's been and everybody is enjoying the pool quite much!
It's been only ~2 weeks since ridding BaquaGoo out of my pool and getting it under control via BBB method. So far the pool is REALLY stable on all it's chems. TC stays between 3-7 adding bleach every other day depending on the weather (note I have a clear solar cover,) CC: always 0.5, pH stays around 7.5 mostly and I've only had to add a few pounds of Borax once or twice to bring it up from 7.2 CYA is always a solid 40 and TA floats between 100-110.
I mean at this rate, as long as I adhere to a steady regimen I'm only in it for normal maintenance of $2.75 bottle of bleach every week and half or so, a $5 box of borax will last me at least a month or so and that's it. I mean, for less than $20/month I have a very inviting sparkling pool to jump into! Thanks!!!
