Thread: About to take the plunge on a DIY pool.

    About to take the plunge on a DIY pool.

    Hi, I'm Sherry. My family and I are about to take on the DIY challenge. We had an AG pool for 10 years. I used the BBB method (well, mostly) but until I found this didn't know there was a name for it.

    I too, had no idea that the CYA would get so high from all those tablets. I just used BBB mostly because it was inexpensive and easy to purchase just about anywhere. I live in a rural area and it was just easy.

    I've learned a lot already from the site and am looking forward to learning more.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
