    Bad Bleach?

    I use the 182 oz. jugs of Great Value bleach.. I went out just before dark tonight to do my nightly pour. The seal thingy that comes on top of new jugs appeared to be almost melted off when I removed the lid. I thought it was odd, I've never had one like that. When I poured it into the clear measuring cup I use I noticed the color was totally wrong, it was orange and the odor was very, very strong. I decided against using it in the pool and ended up dumping the whole jug on some pesky weeds growing along our fence line. Yeah I know... I probably shouldn't do that, but bleach is great weed killer. I opened another container and it seemed fine. Now I'm wondering if any more of the new jugs I bought yesterday are like that. I'll have to wait until morning to check them. Has anyone else ever bought any "bad" bleach?

    Is it possible it was not diluted correctly at the plant?

    I would have been interested in testing that bleach solution just to see what the concentration was.

    The thought of testing it hit me soon after I poured it out. Maybe it was super concentrated.
