    Re: BBB at its finest!

    WOW Super POSITIVE report. And I sure like your motto. If you don't mind I'm going to speak it some.

    I just started my friends pool to complete conversion to BBB. I was over there working late, last night, and explaining the concepts to my friend. I don't think I've ever used the word "sparkle" at any time.

    We still have a ways to go. AND This morning she called me to make sure she had my instruction for today's actions correct (Pouring in some liquid 6% chlorine {were bringing up the 0 CYA with stockings} and don't let the pool guy touch a thing!!!!! Unless he wants to backwash and put in the new (my new last year filter grids) (We just put in a new bigger filter).

    Without any prompting she said, "Boy, the water was starting to sparkle this morning!!!!!"

    I LOVE IT.
