OK, I've been doing BBB sincen late June and have decided to ask a question that I should probably already know the answer by now!
When I add bleach or muriatic acid, I've been dribbling straight bleach, and dribbling MA mixed in bucket with pool water, along the sides and promptly brushing the pool down, sides and all, just to make sure it doesn't settle on the bottom or on the sides. Obviously, the addition of bleach each evening would necessitate having to brush the pool every evening, in my way of thinking!
So on the bleach, do I need to be brushing it, or can I just mix it with a big bucket of pool water and pour THAT along the sides and not have to brush it down? I have no patience to stand there at the return jet and slllooowwwly pour it in, plus it still looks like it's nosediving to the bottom!
With the MA, which I'm only now having to add for the first time, I've been mixing it with pool water and pouring it along the sides and promptly brushing entire pool to make sure it doesn't sink and set. The instructions say to dillute it (for lowering pH only) and pour it slowly into the deep end at the return. But our circulation is not the greatest and I don't think it would be mixed well by just pouring it into the deep end at the jet. So that's why I walk around the pool with it.
Thanks for any help.
