  1. Thanks to everyone who contributed their help, advice and experience. I truly appreciate it. I was thrilled to learn of BBB because I was clueless as to where I would store pool chemicals.

No chemicals, balancing acts, scum, mold, etc. My only problem should be trying to figure out where to store the dang thing til I fill it again...lol.
