    Household bleach vs Liquid chlorinator

    Want to be sure I am using the right product. Menard's sells a Splash Pool Shock Liquid Chlorinator which it says is 12.5% Liquid Chlorine. Have been using "clorax" bleach.
    Is it okay to use these other liquid chlorine products. Walmart has one also under a different name in the pool department.

    ya just avoid any scented or splash-less bleach when buying at the grocery store.

    Same chemical, different concentrations. Be sure to use the right strength when using poolmath.

    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!
