    We opened our pool today!

    First time opening using the BBB method and I couldn't be happier!! A *tiny* bit of debris (from closing last year) on the bottom, but otherwise, crystal clear!!







    I do love the BBB method!!

    Your pool looks great!! I opened mine last weekend, not so good... I have used bacqu for a number of years, at first it was great! More & more is seems to be getting harder to clear the water, it is cloudy, milky...no green. I am not sure what to do, stay with the Bacqu or try this method. I definetly need a cheaper method.

    I would need a lot of hand holding to convert to Chlorine since I have never used it before. I am still reading the pool school information.

    Joelea,

    Conversions are fairly straightforward, and you won't regret switching to Chlorine.

    Please start a new thread when you are ready to post questions about your own pool, to avoid a "thread hijack" situation.
