    Outdoor Bleach

    I have two jugs of outdoor bleach that I would like to dilute. The bottles do not state the percentage chlorine. How much should I use to get a 96 oz. bottle of 6% bleach? 12% would be good too.

    Outdoor bleach is not the same as regular bleach or liquid pool chlorine. It is already in the neighborhood of 6% sodium hypochlorite, but contains thickening agents and other cleaners as well.

    You don't want to use it. Clorox outdoor bleach has additives, a thickener and "metal protection". Neither are things you are likely to want in the pool. I suggest you stick with the Clorox regular or a generic bleach without added features.
