    Is this good chlorine for regular use?

    I was looking for bleach and this was actually cheaper ($2.50) and stronger.

    I bought six bottles, was going to get more but I wanted to make sure it's a good option.

    Yes. Seen at many Wal-Marts - 10% strength.

    Awesome thanks.
    How many bottles should I get if I wanted to stock up (they will be stored in pool house). I took about half of their stock, but I plan to go back and grab more, it was even cheaper than bleach.

    ha ha. They probably gave you that funny look too. Well, if you are storing them in the house in some good A/C, get what you can I guess. You'll see a Julian date stamp on each bottle, something like 16-155 day. That means today (3 Jun 16) is the 155th day of 2016. So if they have an old number like 16-100, you might pass on getting too many. But if they are fairly new, grab what you want I suppose.
