Just a quick story about the BBB method and the TF test kit. I've been using the the TF test kit and doing the BBB (and muriatic acid) method since the pool company finished our pool school in May. I went a bit overboard in the beginning and was doing all of the tests every couple of days. When I was pretty sure I was doing it right and was getting consistant (good) numbers I backed off and used the daily chlorine test and got it down to a good routine of adding bleach daily and not much of anything else. I finally got around to bringing my water to the Leslies to have them check it out. I was sure they were going to give me some sort of hard time.
The lady got done, handed me my sheet, and said "go enjoy your pool". The manager standing next to her shot her a quick glance and the customer in line behind me said "what do you mean???? He gets to leave and not buy anything???". I found the guy later in the store and told him about the site. We'll probably see him around soon.
Thanks for all you guys do!
