    Chlorine strength? ?

    I went to the local water treatment shop and bought 5 gallons of liquid chlorine, the older lady behind the counter told me it was 15% and one of the field techs told me it was straight chlorine. Is there any way to get an idea what % I'm actually useing? My fc was at 2.5 and after I added 11oz it was up to 6, so I do believe it's quite abit stronger than conventional bleech.

    There is a calculator at the bottom of Pool Math that you can use to figure out the strength of your chlorine.
