    Newbie question about bleach/chlorine

    Is bleach just chlorine watered down? So 8% bleach is 8% chlorine (or sodium hypochlorite) and 92% water? Or am I wrong?
    10,000 gallon inground, gunite, 500lb sand filter. Brand new to this pool thing.

    Basically. With some salt and lye. Thus part of the reason they switched from 6% to 8.25% ... less shipping of water around the country.
