I'm working on getting the CYA level down but in the meantime, more questions.
After reading a ton of articles on TFP, I think I know the answers but just for clarification:
Using the BBB method, am I to understand that I will no longer have a need for the chlorine tablets (3" pucks) or algaecide? I've read that if you keep the FC level above xx (depending on CYA level), then algae can't grow (or thrive). Is it therefore useless to put algaecide in the pool weekly like the pool store claims you should? And what about the automatic chlorinator (the cylinder that holds the 3" pucks)...do I keep that or cut it out of the plumbing?
