    Bleach is liquid chlorine just at a lower concentration of 6% Sodium Hypochlorite verses 10% or 12.5% (typically) Sodium Hypochlorite for Liquid chlorine.

    Benefits of LC is higher concentration, so less to carry.

    Benefits of Bleach is longer shelf life and typically lower lye concentration (though this isn't really too important).

    I just use whatever is cheapest, keeping in mind the different Sodium Hypochlorite concentration.
