    New to BBB method...

    I am so thrilled that I was directed to this method of caring for pools!
    We just purchased an Intex 13'x36" metal frame pool about 2 weeks ago. Got it put up and filled, (well water) used all the "fancy" chemicals and by the end of the first week it was a milky white color
    My husband's boss suggested this method and the website...
    not only do I now know what the problem was (dead algea) but my pool is almost perfectly clear and is already sparkling.... 3-4 days after using the BBB method!

    Thank you so very much for providing this wonderful website!

    Welcome to TFP!

    And thank you to your husband's boss for the referral. I take it she/he is a member here?

    Glad you got your pool turned around!

    Thank you Anna!
    I'm not sure if he is a member or not, but he definitely knew where to send us and swears by it!
    I'm hooked and won't ever get "pool stored" again...

    Welcome to the forum! I was sooo ripe for being pool stored until my daughter's friend's mom told me about the BBB method. I am so glad you discovered before you had spent TOOO much money. See you around!
