    Ugh, screwed up. So dumb. Used wrong liquid bleach

    Stupid me I picked up 6 bottles of Home Depot's X brand bleach. Or I thought I did. Turns out one of them was the "bleach cleaner" and the bottles were so similar I didn't notice it when I bought it or grabbed it from my chem locker either.


    I got about 70oz in the pool before I noticed a slight suds on the surface and went ***

    How bad have I screwed up here? I was using liquid to shock as part of prep before I left it for 6 days without swimming so won't be in the pool for 6 days.

    God I feel dumb. Always look at the label, twice, three times.

    Done is done.

    What are the ingredients in it? Adequate chlorine will likely take care of it over the next few days.
