    What to use for clorine

    Was just at Walmart, this is in Saskatchewan Canada and could buy:
    4L HTH liquid shock ( sodium hypochlorite 10.8% available clorine content 10.3% it had no other useful info than that) for $5.47 plus tax
    or
    3.57L Clorox original concentrated bleach ( doesn't give any info, it says go to The Clorox Company | Products | Ingredients Inside and I couldn't find the exact bottle there to see sodium hypochlorite % one I looked at said 5-10%) for 4.33 plus tax.

    does anyone know if the HTH liquid shock contains any other stuff that I don't want in my pool.
    For now I grabbed 4 bottles of Clorox
    18' round regatta AGP 52" wall
    1 HP Hayward turbo flow II pump
    Hayward XStream cartridge filter

    Go with the HTH liquid shock. It's 10% good stuff.

    Someone recently posted that the "concentrated" bleach in CA is 6%

    You might want to check around closer to home. They use high-strength Sodium Hypochlorite ( bleach) to sanitize dairy equipment. You may discover the farm supply store has it at a good price.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
