Hey what's up everyone. I am new to the BBB TFP Method. I started in the spring using this method. I've had great results. I opened a swamp, and it took about 2-3 weeks to clear up. I then had high alkalinity and took care of that after another week. I've only had one time where I let my chlorine get too low and had an algae bloom. I think it was partly because I hadn't killed ALLLLLL the stuff from the swamp. ANYWAYYYYY.......
I've had great success using liquid chlorine only and muriatic acid for the PH that somehow continues to rise even with a low alkalinity. I'm using about .5 Gallons of 12% every day or other day. I've been able to find a 4 gallon case at Menards and Big R for pretty cheap when it's on sale. But when it's not I get a 5 gallon Carhop from the pool store. I get a discount because I have a painting/pressure washing business account with them. I get 5 gallons for $14.
My question is this. Is there an easy way to get the chlorine out of there? I purchased one of those siphon pumps you have to shake in an attempt to transfer from 5 gallon carhop to 1 gallon containers. That didn't work. Pouring the chlorine out of the Carhop makes a mess on the side of the pool. Any secret TFP tricks to doing this?
