    Concentrated bleach and poolcalculator

    The only bleach available in my area is the concentrated bleach. On the bottle it says 121oz=182oz. Now my pool is 24000 gallons. I go to poolcalc and type FC=0 Goal=10 . Bleach is 8.25%. It shows me to add 362oz of bleach. Is that mean that I have to add 362oz of the concentrated bleach? Or should I used it differently since it's concentrated?

    Aaah. poolcalculator.com hasn't been updated in some time and does not include the newer bleach bottle sizes or concentrations. Use the PoolMath link at the top of the page.

    poolcalculator.com is abandoned by its current owner. PoolMath is an in-house version that we are keeping updated.

    Re: Concentrated bleach and poolcalculator

    I thought they are both the same thing. Okay but still do I just add 362oz as recommended per PoolMath?

    They look very much the same but the difference is in the details. PoolMath is up to date.

    Add what it says. The concentration is accounted for in the percentage.

    What I understand is before it was 182oz and 6% and now is 1210z but 8.25% ? I'm I thinking right?

    Re: Concentrated bleach and poolcalculator

    That is correct. PoolMath knows about the new 121 oz jug size so select that and enter the new 8.25% concentration. As long as these are set correctly, your pool volume is correct, and you've plugged in your current and target FC, the amounts it says to add will be correct.
