    A new bleach concentration on the market

    My local store’s generic brand of bleach has just come out with a concentration that does not seem to be in the pool calculator.
    The bottle reads: 8.25%, 7.8% available chlorine

    Down on the bottom of the pool calculator under the section “Effects of adding chemicals”, it has a variety of bleach concentrations but not this 8.25%.

    I do see at the top of the pool calculator where you are putting in your target etc. that you can indeed change the concentration.

    Just wanted to let everyone know about this new concentration, and also that is going for the same price around here as the 6%.
    19,800 gallons (closed/winter 18,654 gal); plaster; 18x34 Ft kidney bean shape, Depth 3Ft-5Ft. Built 1992
    Pentair Whisper Flow Pump 1HP. Winter safety cover w anchors.
