Running full strength bleach through a pump not specifically designed for caustic chemicals will rapidly destroy the pump. Also, I can't image pumping bleach with a 30 gpm pump, you want a couple of oz per hour.

you would have to restrict flow..I was just wondering if got the smallest size pump.Correction on gpm...It was GPH.I was just wondering if it would hold up.
