I am new to the BBB method. I used Bacquacil for many, many years and the last two had no sparkle to my water. I began doing some research online this winter to decide what sanitizer to switch to since we were doing new walls and liner this spring, so it would be a great time to switch. We filled out pool Saturday night. I added the bleach beginning on Sunday morning. I have been trying to keep the cl level at 12 since my cya is approx. 25-30. It has been dropping overnight, but just to around 10. The water looks great, clearer and more sparkle than it has had in years. My question is, do I need to run the filter 24/7 until the cl holds overnight, or can it be turned off at night after allowing time for just added bleach to circulate? Also, should I use the solar cover while trying to get the cl to hold? I am trying to be patient, but now that it looks so good, it is tempting to let the level drop to 5. Is it too soon yet to do that?
My pool is above ground, vinyl liner, 7200 gallons.
Thanks for the help!
