Bleach, Baking Soda and Borax

Postby scudman » Sat Mar 02, 2013 10:18 pm

I have been studying up on pool chemistry and have run across an interesting (US) forum that states you can maintain a sparkling clean pool using the BBB method. Bleach, Baking Soda and Borax. Bleach of course for FC, Baking Soda for TA and Borax for PH. They don't claim that this is the end all to buying other pool chemicals, but using these common household products are just as effective as the pool store stuff at highly inflated prices. The question is: Can you get unscented 6% (or higher concentration) household bleach, Arm and Hammer Baking Soda or equivalent and Borax as in 20 Mule Team Borax used in the laundry in many places. Any seen the last two? I am pretty sure the bleach is available. For those who are maintaining their own pools, this may be a way to reduce your maintenance costs.
