Is there a difference in brands when it comes to Liquid Chlorine or Stabilizer?

Are they all about the same? I know with Liquid Chlorine, the strength maybe different, but for the most part it's all the same right? What about Stabilizer? I see brands like Pool Life, Clorox, Walmart brand, random pool store brands... Does it really matter???

Nope.

But check the ingredients carefully. Some bleaches add scents and anti-splash thickeners and fabric protectors. You don't want any of that. And you could find some off-brand of CYA that has fillers or clarifiers or some other snake oil. You want 99 or 100% active ingredient.

Awesome! Yeah - on the Liquid Chlorine, I've just been getting this Walmart brand of bleach. As for CYA - I've just been mixing brands. Didn't figure it would make much of a difference, but I'll keep an eye for the 99/100%.
