    Clorox Outdoor Cleaning Bleach??

    I was just at Lowes and noticed that they are selling "Clorox Outdoor Cleaning Bleach". Anyone know anything about it? Is it just a marketing trick?

    I tried to see what the concentration was, but couldn't find it on the bottle.

    Clorox outdoor bleach has additives, a thickener and "metal protection". Neither are things you are likely to want in the pool. I suggest you stick with the Clorox regular or a generic bleach without added features.

    It's not plain bleach but a detergent based bleach cleaner.

    Thanks for the clarification. I will stick with the regular bleach.

    Well, I sure wish I would have read this before I started using the Outdoor Cleaning Bleach.

    I have added about 7 large jugs the RedMax Outdoor Cleaning Bleach and 3 of the Clorox brand over the past couple of weeks. Today we got a big rain, and I noticed soap bubbles on the surface of the pool, and lots of foam in the skimmers. Until today, I didnt notice anything.

    So, anyone have any recommendations? Is it ok to swim in? Can I just let it go and hope it goes away soon? I have a big party coming up on August 22, so I sure hope it is ok by then.

    I would try an enzyme product, like Pool Perfect. That might help.

    You are not being ignored. I'm just not sure anyone has any personal experience.

    What is your current FC, CC and pH? That may give us some clues.
