    Buckeyemom - yep, you guesses it - from O H I O

    Have been using the BBB method for 3 years now - have had the pool for 10 years. The pool has never been clearer, and I now feel like I know my pool.

    Usually buy Pool Sanitizer - 10% liquid chlorine - from Meijers. Have a Hayward Sand filter - put 2/3 cup of DE in skimmer every time I backwash.
    10,000 gallon inground vinyl FOXX pool - built in 1999. Hayward sand filter. 3/4 HP 2-speed pump with timer. Hayward Aquarite SWG t-3 cell. Love the BBB method - pool has never looked better!

    Once you get the hang of it, kenmar, you will never regret it, you will bore all of your friends with your new method, and you'll have a much more relaxed summer!

    I am afraid I am getting addicted, I have this strange desire to test other peoples pool water.

    BTW, my 16 yro daughter had about 20 people over tonight, I cant wait untill they leave so I can test my pool water
