    Can't find REGULAR 6% bleach

    Help! Have used Regular bleach for 5 years for our pool. Now I can only find Concentrate or the 2.75% bleaches. What to do now?
    Thanx for any help. Lee

    Welcome to the forum.

    Buy any bleach you like as long as it has no additives. plug the percentage into the pool calculator and you are good to go

    Welcome to TFP!

    The 8.25% concentrated bleach is fine to use. You just need to take the new concentration into account when calculating how much to use.

    They seem to have stopped selling 6%. You either buy regular at 8.25 or cheap with 2-3%. In the garden section, they may have 10% and the pool store may sell 12%. The main difference between any of these is much much water you are buying with your CL,
