I have a new pool startup, and came across the BBB method searching for help in what chemicals to buy. I'm all for how easy this sounds, and from the discussion here this really does work.
However, using liquid bleach as opposed to chlorine tablets seems very cost prohibitive to me. I ran some math on what it would take to run my pool off bleach, as opposed to 3" chlorine pucks, using an estimate of 2.5 FC loss per day. Unfortunately, the bleach expense is nearly 4x at $21/week as opposed to $5.50 a week with pucks. (Feel free to run your own calculations using the specs in my signature!)
Am I missing something here? Certainly this method can't be as popular as it sounds, and be 4x the cost of "the other way".
Thanks for any help!
