is ‘The Australian’ the formula to use for this?

I use liquid chlorine, baking soda, muriatic acid

Welcome to the forum! 2 things:

  1. The current formula system is going away, we’re switching to a Github repository (the mobile apps are currently “in review” with Apple / Google): formulas/formulas/formulas at master · pooldash/formulas · GitHub. Sorry I haven’t updated the web-app to reflect this yet, things are a bit chaotic.

  2. I haven’t used the BBB method before, but I’ve been curious about it for a while. I’d love to try modeling it via a formula – can you link to a page where I can see the math for the chemical dosing?

Also, what brand / concentration of liquid chlorine do you use?

I use ‘Pool Essentials’ liquid chlorine, sold at Walmart. It is 10% Sodium Hydrochlorite. is the home for everything related to BBB.
