Just stumbled across this site when searching online for Prestine Blue. To make a long story short, I read some of the things yall have to say about Prestine Blue and im very shocked and now scared and really don't know what to do.
9 years ago I bought a house with a 24' Round 54" Tall pool. The previous owner of the house left all the chemicals in the shop. There was a bottle of Blue, Clean, Check, and Shock. Each bottle had a sticker on it from the place that it was bought from. Good thing because I was new in town and didn't have a clue where anything was. So anyways, I go there and talk to the lady (been doing pools for 19yrs) about how to care for the pool. Over the last 9 years my pool has NEVER been green, NEVER been cloudy, NEVER turned hair green, NEVER had water bugs, NEVER made anybody sick, etc. It couldn't be easier, every week I shock it and every other week I bring a sample in to be tested. She tells me to put this much shock, filter, this much Prestine Blue, this much Prestine Clean, this much ABCEFG, Etc. Takes the time to hand write exactly what I need to do and it works.
Now onto the things I read about Prestine Blue and how its said that the BBB Method is better. It seams to me that it takes a good amount of time to use this method. I work 12hr rotating shift work, a mechanic on the side and have a 1year old so there isn't much time left in the day to add another thing to the list. Is it really that bad to use it? Being as my pool is always perfect with little effort from me is making it hard for me to stop using Prestine Blue.
I have read a lot "never met a person that didn't have issues with Prestine Blue". Well, I couldn't be happier with it.
Just a little background of the pool.
The Pool is 24'Round X 54" Tall and about 12-14years old with Skimmer and Center Drain
Replaced the liner, skimmer, and drain about 2 years ago
Replaced the SD-60 Sand Filter a couple months ago along with new sand
Whenever the pool isn't being used there is a Lil Shark with a Leaf Canister in the pool making sure it stays clean, I also have a net attached to a bracket I made just before the skimmer that catches things before there able to get into the pump.
