Every season I use a few lbs of cal hypo (73%) to get the pool cleared up for spring opening (mesh safety cover, so we inevitably have some algae in the pool, and I like to make sure its dead before I start vacuuming to waste)
I was wondering if Im any better or worse off just dumping in the pool store bleach ("12%", probably really 10% by the time I get it into my pool). The cal hypo has to be ordered online but I can get the pool store stuff locally, and I use it for my Liquidator as well so I need to pick some up anyway.
I always figured the cal hypo might be a little slower release as the powder has to dissolve. Not sure if its true or not, or if I would blow thru the 12% liquid quicker or not.
