    Splashless Bleach Question

    I accidently picked this up at the store and have used it in my pool. Is this type of bleach adding unwanted things to my pool? It says concentrated and I assume it is 8.25%, but it does not list it on the bottle at all. It is Clorox brand and not an off brand. Hopefully I have not messed anything up too much.

    Thanks.

    Stop using it as it may make your water foam. It will however subside in time and is not harmful given you just started using. Chemgeek had a recent post about it, but can't find it at the moment.

    The sodium hydroxide is normal and is not the cause of foaming. Are you sure you got regular Clorox, even if more concentrated? It sounds like maybe you got the splashless or outdoor varieties. The following are the new concentrated Clorox bleaches:

    OK to use:
    Clorox Concentrated Regular Bleach
    Clorox Concentrated Germicidal Bleach

    DO NOT USE:
    Clorox Gentlebleach (not yet concentrated)
    Clorox Concentrated Scented Bleach
    Clorox UltimateCare Bleach (not yet concentrated)
    Clorox Concentrated Splash-less Bleach
    Clorox Concentrated Outdoor Bleach
    Clorox Concentrated High Efficiency Bleach
    I only used 80 ounces and noticed it. Should I just run a higher level of the regular stuff to get it up. I have 3 bottles of the non splashless bleach which would bring my FC level up about 10.

    Yup, just use the regular stuff. No need to raise FC above your FC/CYA target. I doubt 80oz worth will make any noticeable difference.
