I'm glad I finally found my way to this forum. I've been visiting the other forum for over a year while we were planning our pool. The forum contained a wealth of knowledge but it was frustrating not being able to register and ask questions. It looks like that knowledge is starting to find it's way over to this forum. I'd like to thank everyone for contributing their time and sharing their expertise and experience.
We have a 15X30 AGP which was recently installed. I've been using the BBB method. I haven't had a need to add either Borax or baking soda as of yet. Bleach. CYA and Muriatic Acid has been all I've needed to add so far to keep my levels balanced. I picked up the Taylor K2006 test kit and have been using that to maintain my chemical levels with good success.
I want to thank Sean for starting this forum as a resource for newbies like me who are interested in the BBB method. I hope the community continues to grow and prosper.
