    Don't buy "Splash-less" Chlorox

    I figured 'Splash-Less' meant an improved bottle, but the bleach is like a syrup, and causes major foaming in the spa. The label otherwise looks just like the other Chloroxs, says "regular" and "concentrated". When I finally looked, the ingredients say Sodium Hypochlorite and Sodium Hydroxide (no %). It's as if they've added glycol to it but the Chlorox company would only tell me it's not intended for spa use. So I'm back to step one, after being in the TFP groove for several months. At least Chlorox is sending me a refund, of sorts.

    A quick search here would have revealed that you should not use that stuff ... you need the plain bleach, not splashless/outdoor/scented/etc.

    Just plain ol concentrated at 8.25%. Just over $8 for 3 large bottles at Costco.

    Yep, that's what I've been using (8.25%) and it works great. My wife just brought home a gallon jug of plain bleach, a no-name brand, so I'm guessing it's half strength, which is why I went looking for Chlorox, regular, concentrated. Now I'm back to using Dichlor until I get the CYA level up to goal.

    Some of the no-name brands are full strength, some can be under 2%. It SHOULD say on the bottle, but not all of them do.

    See this post for more info. The splash-less and outdoor bleaches have additives that thicken the bleach and in water it causes foaming.

    Re: Don't buy "Splash-less" Chlorox

    I accidently bought and used the GV Splashless once. It caused a fair amount of bubbles in my pool but nothing major went haywire. I knew something was wrong as soon as I saw the bubbles forming.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
