I am first time pool owner and never done anything but BBB and I am starting to realize that maybe this BBB thing is not for people in some states.
My pool has cartridge filter and never winterizes.
Issues doing BBB
1) Constantly adding stabilizer to keep CYA levels up because of water replacement due to 100+ degrees and 8 hours of sunlight.
2) Extreme salty water
3) 5-6ppm daily Cl loss - approx $2.50/day in bleach
4) lots of Acid because of unstabilized chlorine
