We just returned from a week long trip after I just got our pool straightened out on the BBB method and was worried that I would have to clean it up again, but it looks great! I "cheated" a little and put a few tabs in the chlorinator since my CYA was only about 40, and had my father-in-law come over twice to pour some bleach into it, but we have had a lot of rain here while I was gone and I was afraid it wouldn't be enough. But I was pleasantly surprised when I looked out and saw crystal clear water. There's some dirt in it because the water level was above the skimmer opening from all the rain, but the FC is at 4 with no CC and the CYA is still around 40. I just added a couple bottles of bleach and threw the Dolphin in.
I'm so glad I found this site! Last year we returned to a green swamp after being gone for 10 days. This year we'll be swimming the day we returned.
