I am wanting to switch over to BBB method but have some expensive chemicals to use first. Please guide me on how to transition over.
I have a SplashPool - 13x21x4 - sand filter - 8200 gal.
The water is absolutely gorgeous - very inviting, and I want to keep it that way. My CYA is high - 119 - so I switched over to a shock without stabilizer. I have a bucket of pucks, that have stabilizer.
Here is what I have left 23 - 1lb. pkgs of turbo shock - w/o stabilizer and the pucks w/stabilizer, mentioned above.
So can I use up the turbo shock as needed to shock my pool and use liquid bleach for daily chlorinating?
Do people who use liquid bleach, use anything in their skimmers?
When the pool is going to have a heavy swimmer load, could I use the pucks I have to keep the chlorine level high during that time? (I mean in addition to the daily liquid bleach - are these compatible?)
I was told my my local (expensive pool supply store) that I should backwash liberally throughout the summer to work the CYA down.
