I was thinking about recycling used bleach containers into "single serving" containers.
The idea is to figure out how much bleach is needed for a 0.5 PPM raise and then add that to a bleach jug and top off with water (well water first and then bleach). If my math is right (22K Gallons with liner, 8.25% Bleach, 121 Oz jug) then each single serving container will be about a 1.2% bleach concentration.
The main goal is to have it so that just about anyone can grab one (or a few) of these containers and just dump them in the skimmer with the pump running without having to do any math or mixing or pouring slowly, or pouring in front of a return and then brushing, etc. Just as easy as throwing pucks into the skimmer (don't want to talk about the cons of puck in skimmer here...)
I can spend 15 minutes every week mixing up a batch of these single serving containers and then the rest of the family can more easily help with daily maintenance
The only down side that I can see is to ensure that no one can accidentally grab and dump a "full strength" container into the skimmer.
Are there other downsides - for example will the chlorine break down faster at that dilution level (stored out of sun, but subject to outside temps?
Is that 1.2% dilution safe for just dumping into skimmer?
What about just dumping into the deep end - say from a diving board?
Imagine you're going to ask a teenage kid to put the chlorine in the pool. You're pretty sure they'll mange to get it in, but not quite positive they'll do it exactly as instructed . I know I wouldn't want to use full strength in that case, but is 1.2% just about foolproof?
