    Yes. It's the same as "liquid chlorine" sold in pool stores, except lower strength. Many people on the forum use regular bleach.

    Make sure it's "unscented" or "regular scent."

    Yep, what Paul said

    You can use the Pool Calculator (link in my sig) to calculate proper doses for your pool.

    Most of us use liquid chlorine/bleach or a SWG.
