    kids plastic pool and bleach

    I have looked at some of the links and figured out how many gallons my kids pool is but cant figure out just how much bleach to put in. I only want to extend the water "life" and keep the pool cleaner for a couple of days more. There is no pump.... and the pool takes about 540 gallons. I did find a calculator but didn’t understand the FC and PH. I need a degree in chemistry. HEHE..

    Adding about 2 1/2 oz of 6% bleach each evening and mixing it in well should keep the water safe for a couple of weeks.
