So I have been using the BBB method for a couple of years and its worked great.
On Friday, I tested after not checking for a few weeks (not pool weather around here recently) and pH was very low.
So I added 2 boxes of Borax because that is all I had.
The next day I went and got more and when I added one more box to the pool, I got a dark blue cloud in the pool as soon as I started adding the borax.
I stopped adding the borax and watched as the blue cloud slowly covered the entire pool.
Anything or anyone that went in the pool came out with a slight blue tint.
The next day, a blue, crystal powder covered the bottom of the pool (whatever I created settled out).
Anyone know what this blue cloud is or the powder that settled out?
How do I keep this from happening again? The ph was still low when I added the 3rd box of Borax - should I have waited more than 24 hours to add the 3rd box of Borax?
Confused as to why this happened and how to stop it from happening again.
