    Clorox Bleach Germicidal Concentrated - good for pool?

    Home Depot has this stuff 3x121oz for $4.27. It's 8.3% and does not appear to have anything special in it. Wondering about the "Germicidal"? Anyone know if this would be OK to use in the pool?

    Welcome!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    So, considering I have no chemicals, my pool was not opened last summer (new to me house), I have a truck, and storage should not be an issue - how many 3-packs of this stuff do you guys think I should buy? I guess the bleach can go bad if it sits around too long?

    ...oh and I think my pool is between 35 and 40k gallons, but still need to get a better idea on that...

    Double check that price. In the Bleach Prices 2013 thread, somebody said the price is mislabeled and that price is per bottle.

    Didn't we already confirm in the 2013 Bleach thread that the website is wrong and that price is for 1 bottle and not 3 making it a really bad deal?
