I found this site last fall looking for info on the ionizer I just bought.lol Then I read all the problems with copper systems and how well the BBB works.
Anyways...I'm done with my ionizer. Just used up my anodes, not gonna go this route again. It really worked pretty good on the algae but recommended to add 1/2 gal bleach once a week or every three days depending on bather loads. I just didn't feel comfortable letting my child swim in water that may not be sanitized. How do you know? As I learned and you guys know....chlorine + metals = stains. All I had to do was let the ph get high and presto...Stains! I was having to use bleach anyways so might as well get rid of all the metals
Sorry to be so long winded. Need to make sure I'm doing this the right. Heres my problems.
1. I need to get rid of the copper and silver in the pool. I figured I'd have to replace the water to get it completely out...If thats possible. If theres a better way let me know.
2. As my copper level drops the algae is gonna come fast. Will I have to add alot of polyquat 60 until I can get the chlorine up? I guess I have to keep the ph low. Advice on this please.
