I went back and forth trying to decide to post this question in the Swimming Pool Equipment Category or the Testing Category. I thought here would be more appropriate.
I'm planning on using the BBB method for our current pool. (15x33 Above Ground). The current Hayward Sand filter has a Pool Frog Installed (Owner of the home before us). I've never used one. In the past, Ive used other types of automated chlorinators or manually added it.
Does anyone have any opinions on the Pool Frog? I've looked at a bunch of info on their site along with my manuals. On one hand, the "mineral cartridge" is about $75.00 per season and the Chlorine Cartridges are just a bunch of tablets. I was planning to "go BBB" and who knows the effectiveness of the mineral cartridge vs other methods..
On the other hand, the "claims" are that it reduces chemical usage etc (Opinions welcome on that).
My questions was:
Is it possible to use the system (mineral and tablet cartridges) to supplement the BBB method (or, I guess I should say Along with the BBB method) ??
I was out there today getting ready to remove the system and thought I'd ask before I did. Since we just moved in, and it's been years since we've had a pool, I wanted to get some opinions before next season. The current owner swears by it , says it cuts down on chlorine usage and it works well.
Any and all opinions welcome.
I've been looking over the BBB method on the forum and getting ready for next season. Great source of info. I'm just getting ready to order my TF test kit and get ready for next year.
