I started my conversion from Baq to BBB back on the July 4th weekend. The conversion was pretty much by the book as has been described here many times. After about the third day I started seeing amazing results. Well, after a month the results are still amazing. The pool has been crystal clear every single day. Not only was it never this clear with Baq, it was never consistent. It might have been moderately clear one day, they cloudy the next with algae blooming. On any given day after running the Pool Rover, the filter bag would be green and clogged. The area under my steps was an algae breading ground. No more--there is no green anywhere. Switching to BBB was THE best thing I've done since installing the pool. For the last 4+ years I truly never enjoyed the pool. It was always so much work and no reward. I threatened to tear it out quite a few times. This forum and all the glorious information made it all possible. In the last month, I have used my pool more than all the previous summers combined.
Two weeks ago I added a ChlorEase Ultra and added salt. Now I love the pool even more, even though I am still trying to fine tune the SWG operation. The TF-100 test kit was worth every penny. It's allowed me to get all my numbers right where they should be, although I plan to bring up the CYA a touch and drop the TA a little more. I'm also considering adding borates.
