This is an amazing forum and I'm so glad I found it! I just came back from a 3 day road trip on Tuesday and found myself with a green pool. I shocked it and added an algaecide, swept the entire pool and got rid of algea. I spent two full evenings cleaning the pool, plumbing, filter, and water.
Today I tested my cloudy water, and entered the numbers in the pool calculator. Then I drove to the $ store and picked up the BBB items. I treated the water an hour ago IAW the calculator and will test the water again in the morning. (Oh, i did have to add 3 lbs of stabilizer, that I already had, inside a sock in the skimmer)
My questions at the moment are: Does using the BBB method negate the use of a chlorine tablet floater in the pool? Will the water take longer to clear up using the BBB?
