    As Jason says it was the old name for TFPC, it stood for Bleach, Borax and Baking Soda and was originally meant as a method to buy most / all of your pool supplies without needing to go to a pool store. The problem was it really did not address our main concerns which were never where you bought your supplies, but instead what is the best method to maintain a pool as well and as cheaply as possible. The other problem with BBB was the second 2 B's over and over again we would see people wanting to try it run out and buy Bleach, Borax and Baking Soda, then only to find out that the majority of the people using the method rarely if ever used the second 2 B's.
