    How long can I store chlorine?

    So I got a great deal at Home Depot and I was going to buy several gallons of their liquid chlorine which is 10%. I was going to store it in my basement. Which is a cool dry area. How long do you think I could keep it in there for without it going bad? thanks!

    Can I add Alkalinity up, and shock the pool at the same time?

    Actually found concentrated bleach at Aldis. Brand is Tandil. Has 6% and cost $2.22. Not to bad. Only thing is it says it can be used on HE washing machines. Not sure if that matters

    Can I add Alkalinity up, and shock the pool at the same time?

    So any other brand is fine that doesn’t say splashless? Or you’re saying don’t add liquid bleach at all? Was using liquid because I thought/heard the tablets were bad after awhile.
