    Liquid Chlorine

    Is Liquid Chlorine (Sodium Hypoclorite 12.5%) the same as 2x bleach?

    Re: Liquid Chlorine

    Liquid chlorine and bleach are both sodium hypochlorite, just different strengths.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    With regular old bleach typically being 6%, the 12.5% is essentially "double strength".

    ^ What they said.

    One thing to be aware of with the higher concentrations: They degrade faster than do the lower concentrations, especially when stored in a warm-hot location such as a garage or shed. When purchasing the higher concentrations (>= 10%), it is best to purchase from a source where the product turnover is reasonably high.
