    What does BBB stand for?

    I did a search(advanced) for BBB but it says "The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search" I know its simple, just can't figure it out. It's used in this article http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...irst-Full-Year , must be something like DIY?

    thanks, Brian

    OOPS should have googled it first, "bleach, borax, baking soda" http://www.poolsolutions.com/gd/the-...pool-care.html the google answer

    It stands for Bleach,Borax, Backing Soda aka the BBB Method. We now use TFPC, which stands for Trouble Free Pool Care. 😎

    To expand on that, the name was changed because too many people thought the baking soda and borax were the magic pill that would keep the water sparkling all by itself and would stockpile the stuff even though their pool didn't need the baking soda or the borax.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I've always hated the 3 letter word exclusion in forum searches....it's incredibly common though.

    You can always go to Google and enter your search as:

    site:troublefreepool.com search term here

    Google will only show the results from the website listed after "site:" when you search this way.

    took me awhile to figure that out, but you're correct. It works like a charm. (overly complicated IMO, but it does work).

    It is good for searching websites that don't have a search function.

    The search box at the top right of every page does a Google search of just this site for you, and works with three letter words. It is only advanced search that does not work with three letter words.

    I was just going to say what Jason did. If you just used the regular search box, it would have worked.
