    Costco bleach 8.25

    So I'm new to this Bought some Clorox at Costco. When I returned home, I noticed it was 8.25% not 6% as in the forum. How can I use this ?

    Page needs to be updated with 121oz selection. For now putting in a little extra.

    The jugs do say they are equivalent to 182 oz of 6%, so if you Use those numbers and go by Jug count alone it should be equivalent.

    Thanks, I didn't know about it either, the only thing I see right now is the amounts are not sorted, but tacked on the end.

    Re: Costco bleach 8.25

    Is a moot point now but I had been calculating with 6%, then with 10% and averaging the two results. Basicly gave a result for 8% but I figured that was 'close enough for guvmint werk'.

    On the pool calculator, the result given in ounces is still correct for the % of bleach entered. It just can't convert the results to the new jug sizes.
