I have a question. I started using BBB now for about a month. The water looks great.
However, my question is that the bleach must have a ph factor in it correct? I remember reading that liquid chlorine of 12.5% has a PH factor of 13? Maybe this is why I have stopped having to use any PH up now that I quit using the pucks as trichlor must have a PH of 3 or so if I remember correctly.
I was curious because I now have to use MA to bring town the PH/TA in my pool that I have never had to do. I am not complaining at all as its fairly close to the same price between Borax and Baking soda around here, maybe a little cheaper per gallon if you buy it in bulk.
The good thing is I can get all of this in town and not have to go to the pool store as that is 100 miles away.
I still buy some minor things from them like a metal controlling agent, water tests, and some Liquid Chlorine and when I asked them this question, guess what? No one there could give me a straight answer about it!
So maybe chem geek, this may be one for you? I just want to know as everything is going well.
Had the inlaws over today and one group had an above ground and when I started to visit with them about the difference in Chlorines out there, they really had no clue as to what I was talking to them about. When I mentioned BBB, they still had no idea, and when I explained to them what it was, they thought I was crazy to put bleach in the pool
Well anyway, I was just wondering. Sorry I am a bit lenghly here in my post.
Thanks for any information you can offer.
