    Mix Chlorine safely

    I just got green algae and am trying to round up what I will need to get to shock level and hold. I'm almost ready to close for season and dont want to go buy a bunch of stuff...I have some aquachem shock leftover, some HTH stuff and a few things of bleach...Combined I have enough to get to 15FC .

    My concern is that on the aquachem there is a big sticker saying to not mix chemicals...Does it mater if they are all different chlorine generating chemicals? Plan to goto Bleach after this battle of Algae but can I mix my hodgepodge safely?

    Once one is distributed in the water, mixing is okay. Mixing different forms of chlorine in a bucket or chlorinator can result in an explosion.
