    Clorox "Germicidal" Bleach?

    Hey guys,

    I'm all over the BBB system now and my pool has never looked better. Thanks for all of your helpful advice. I've been buying Clorox "Regular" Bleach and I was at Home Depot the other day and they had Clorox but was labeled "Germicidal" bleach. The ingredients look the same to me but I wanted to make sure that it's ok to use in the pool. See pic....

    Great! So I can use it. I seem to find myself at Home Depot every other weekend or so, so this is useful information. Thanks.

    You will also want to check out Costco and Sam's and pay attention to the specials at the grocery stores. Compare Walmart house brand as well as grocery store house brands.

    If I see 6% bleach in a decent brand at around $1.50/gallon I stock up. Otherwise, it is Sam's at $8.40something for 3x182oz at 6%.

    At Costco in Independence, MO, it is 8.15 for 3/182oz. It's really close to me, so I haven't really looked at other places.

    On Costco's website, they only show the Germicidal bleach whitch is more expensive, my Costco didn't have that in the stores, they just had the regular Clorox.
