    Hello from Barbados!

    Hi there.
    I'm Barbara (English) and I live in Barbados. Small (5500 gal) IG pool. All year round swimming here, which is great, but difficulties in obtaining supplies sometimes. Still, you can't have everything!
    13,000 gallon inground gunite pool/spa. 2hp Whisperflow Pump, Pentair cartridge filter, Nature Soft SWG, Waterfall, Hayward Navigator.

    Welcome to TFP

    Difficulty in getting supplies....I guess that's the trade off for living in the tropics. What about the basics like with BBB, can you get those fairly easily?

    Hows the weather?

    Hey and welcome! Yep, if you have trouble getting supplies, the BBB method may be just the thing for you! Check out the Pool School area on the home page, you'll be surprised just how few supplies you'll need. Wow, how cool is Barbados! I just looked it up, NICE! 8)
