    this bleach or that chlorine

    So am using 128oz jugs of 5.25% bleach from local hardware, $2.50 per jug

    InTheSwim has one pound bottles of Instant Liquid Chlorine (a powder) for $5 per

    would be fun to have fewer empty bleach bottles to recycle

    would Instant Liquid Chlorine be Ok alternative?

    ooops, I found on TFP web regarding the stuff


    More smoke, mirrors, and misdirection. You can see the manual/info sheet here, and its 73% Cal-Hypo.

    That is cal-hypo which will increase your CH which could lead to calcium scaling.

    All solid forms of chlorine adds something that stays in the pool after the chorine is used up.

    That's 73% Cal-hypo.
    If you have low CH, it can be viable. If you have normal or high CH, you're begging for CH buildup and scale formation. http://www.troublefreepool.com/conte...nate-your-pool

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    thank you
    no instant liquid chlorine
    have now found 10% and 12.5% which will cut bottles over half
