    Swapping out Pool Frog

    Hi! We've decided to give up on the Pool Frog just because we can never seem to keep the chlorine consistently high enough to keep the algae away. I ordered my test kit - should be here Monday or Tuesday.

    But, in the mean time - my pool is green AGAIN!

    Any suggestions on what I can do in the mean time so that we can swim?

    Also, any suggestions on switching from the pool frog to BBB method would be helpful too!

    Thanks so much!

    First step-order good test kit---------done!

    Second step-read, read, read, read pool school.

    Third step-look around your area and find your best chlorine/bleach prices-Walmart, pool store (have to get their container), ACE hardward, etc. Buy some.

    Good luck!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Fantastic that you ordered a test kit Which one did you get?

    Do you currently have any form of testing? Can you see the bottom of the pool or not?

    To get you started with understanding what we teach, please take a look at Pool School, beginning with these:
