Hi, from Fl. panhandle!


Jun 30, 2007

I have ordered my expensive test kit and hope to get my pool straightened out, I have been having fits this year.
It is an older 10,000 gallon, sand filtered, gunite pool and the chloroine just keeps disappearing. I went to the store and had my water tested. Threw $88 worth of chemicals in and the second day, it was all gone, and algae had started back. :( I am going to try the BBB method next when I get my test kit in the mail. -Blessings!

Good luck.

Don't wait though, get some bleach in the pool or the algae will get away from you, quickly.

Did the pool store happen to run any tests you can share?
