I just bought a house with a pool, so this is the first time I have been responsible for one. I've been reading around on here to understand chemical balancing etc. I had planned to switch over to some of the methods discussed on this website, but I feel like I am missing something here.
Why would you use Clorox?
I just paid $17 for 5gal of 12.5% which has essentially an $8 deposit on the blue container. I get $8 back when I bring it back. That means I paid $1.80/gal for the more concentrated stuff. Where are the savings by using Clorox? Ocean State Job Lot (Super ghetto discount store found in crappy areas) just had all purpose Clorox ON SALE at $1.99/gal and that was probably 6% or weaker.
