This morning, I realized a real difference between the feel of the water using bleach vs. using trichlor. The bleach chlorinated water feels softer and silkier. Guess it's because of the salt that liquid chlorine puts in the pool! :-D

Curious. Trichlor puts salt into the water also, about half as much as bleach. The salt level wouldn't have changed much after just a few days of using bleach.
