    Best place in the pool to add bleach?

    Just a quick question : when adding the bleach, do you pour around the whole pool, in front of the skimmer, or in front of a jet that's blowing into the pool? I think I have misread the instructions somewhere...thought it would be easier to just ask you all on here for a quick answer.

    Thanks!

    In front of the jet, away from the edge, and slowly. Perfect.

    That was one of my concerns when I first got my pool. I was adding into the skimmer.

    Patrick's technique is what I use now. You can actually see the jet shoot the chlorine into the pool and begin to circulate it.

    Well, I added mine in front of the skimmer last night...I misread "return" as the skimmer. My mistake! Now I know and hopefully others are clearer too!

    Thanks all! I LOVE THIS SITE! Haven't even started using this method fully yet and it's already so helpful! (waiting on my kit...)

    Here is a super handy article that discusses the Recommended Pool Chemicals and how to add them.
