I just bought some bleach from the dollar store, $2.50 for 1.35 gallons. I want to understand what the idea of using bleach instead of shock is. I would like to hear from some of you instead of trying to read and calculate right now, sorry but I am being lazy but also want to hear it from some of the more experienced people in here. I know shock will add CYA to my water and bleach I guess will not. the Bleach is 6% sodium Hypochlorite(7.5% available chlorine). The suggestion here is to add the bleach everytime i need to raise my chlorine level ? And about how many ppm does say a 1/2 gallon raise it (i know it depends on some other factors but could anyone guess at this a little ?) Is there a price savings for using bleach over shock at about $2.50 price per 1 pound bag of shock (I just bought some shock at a Sam's Club, 55.5% available chlorine).
Thanks and i am already trying to read as much as I can on this website.
