After a summer of frustration with my 20+ year Baquicil pool, I have decided to chuck it and try the BBB method.
A month of trips to the pool store and almost $500 in special treatments and shock and I still have a yucky yellow/green/brown soup. I found this site while looking for a cure for my algae problem and it looks like the way to go so, I bought a basic CL/PH kit (ordered the good kit here) and bought 15 182oz bottles of 6% clorox. CL was 0 and PH was 7.8 before adding CL.
At 5pm, I added 4 bottles to the pool and watches it foam and boil like a witche's brew. Will test CL at 7pm and add as necessary.
I haven't discovered how to add a signature but will enter pool info when I do - for now, 27500 gal vinyl in ground, Hayward S-200 filter and 1hp pump.
