    6% or 12% bleach with the LQ?

    Which do people find works best with the LQ? I am currently using 12% chlorine from the pool store daily for my chlorinating needs, so I'm wondering when my LQ shows up if I can continue to use the 12%, or does 6% help prevent some of the white stuff (I'll be doing the 3/8" mod)?

    I use both, buying by price, and never have the white stuff.

    I use both, and only had problems w/ tws on initial start-up, after that no problem. I will say that the clorine that I was buying from HD had allot of other stuff besides clorine that settles on the bottom, since I have been purchasing the 12% from the pool store I have very little other stuff ending up on the bottom.
