    Aldi's bleach? Startup questions?

    Finally received replacement parts to fix our sand filter and we are starting up today!! Pool is GREEN so I am slamming.

    Went to Aldi's to stock up on bleach and discovered it to be different from what we've been using in previous years. Their Tandil bleach is now concentrated and in 64oz. bottles. Active ingredients read: Sodium Hypochlorite...8.25% But also says Yields 7.85% available chlorine. It's not a huge difference, but which number should I use to calculate my chlorinating levels?

    That is 8.25% bleach. But small bottles. I recommend you shop around and use this calculator to find the best deal:

    I just discovered this 8.25% Tandil bleach at Aldis at $1.40 for 64 fl oz. That's the best price I've found on bleach near where I live. The smaller bottle is a pain I guess, but I typically add a 1/2 gallon per day anyways so it sort of works out.
