    novabella chlorine tablets

    I saw these at the store the other day, and was wondering if these could be used as an alternative to household bleach. I couldn't find a list of ingredients,(which doesn't necessarily mean it's not there) and was wondering if anybody knew what was in them. They are in the laundry isle and are advertised as an alternative to liquid bleach.
    I actually don't mind the bottles, but am still curious if I could use those in my chlorinator?

    It's probably just tri-chlor 1" tablets. Wonder how much the markup is?

    I couldn't find the msds for the actual product. But any solid form of chlorine is either tri-chlor, di-chlor, or cal-hypo as far as I've ever heard. CYA won't hurt your laundry so no big deal if it's added to it, no reason to even bother to disclose it for marketing purposes.

    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.

    Laundry tabs are most likely to be sodium percarbonate (a type of non-chlorine bleach), which is sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. They should not be used in your swimming pool.

    The product has an ask-the-chemist page, that you could use to ask about the ingredients.
