This is all I can find at Kroger this morning. It says it is 7.13% chlorine (never heard of this percentage but whatever). The “concentrated” part is what worries me. Everything else is just regular plain bleach. I only bought 1 bottle since I am unsure and wanted advice before buying more possibly. If it’s a no-go for the pool I figured I’d just use it for laundry. ??‍♀️ This is the ONLY bleach they have in stock that isn’t scented or “splash-free”. What are the effects of using “concentrated” bleach? Fortunately, I still have 6 and a half gallons of 10% LC left but I picked one of these up to find out if it can be used. If it can, I’ll go buy more before they’re gone (like all bleach lately). Sorry if this is a dumb question lol. Thanks in advance!F57CA23C-52AE-4D2E-A5A6-9D00E7DAE21B.jpeg

YES! Check the date code (we will help you learn how to read it if you don't already know how). That is GOOD bleach with it being 7% if it is kept inside and within 3 months of it's born on date.

That should be fine. I think the ‘concentrated’ has to do with the percentage. Most household bleach is only 6%, and sometimes even less than that.

I always keep my bleach/LC indoors at room temperature. As far as the date code, I will check it as soon as I get home! By the way, I am in LOVE with my Aquabot Junior!!! Still need a name, though! ?

She has a name worthy of YOU! and ME!!

Now check that bleach date code and go buy more while they have it!!!

Oh and on the storage it is more where the store stores it.............One guy shared a pic of where his pool store stored it...outside in the full sun all day! It was water instead of bleach :(

Have you looked at Menards? Check online for the amount in stock.
I have not checked it. Kroger is literally 3 minutes from my house and I had to go grocery shopping this morning anyways. Thank you, though! I’ll definitely check out Menards. There is one about 20 min from me.

I stocked up. I might have bought too much, but I will find out and learn this summer. Gallon of 12.5% pool shock with Rebate promotion going on currently. Good luck!

Great idea! I still have a little under 7 gallons of 10% LC I bought from True Value but I still want to stock up since I hear the “non-pool people” are starting to catch on that liquid pool chlorine (or “shock” as it is sometimes labeled) is also, in fact, the same thing as regular household bleach lol ??‍♀️??
