what "trade" means (unchangeable field after the user entered % in Poolmath's FC sect

Hi,
Am unclear on what's the right way to enter chemical info for FC. I buy 10% chlorine from Home Depot (as shown on the jug label).

Should I enter "10" in the fill form of Pool Math? I am confused what "trade" means (unchangeable field after the user entered %.).

PS I selected the 128 oz jug.
/Thanks.

Are you using the web site pool math or the pool math app?

I saw that too on website. It changed to trade if you put 12.5 from weight if u put 8.25.

The change occurs automatically in both the App and the webpage as there's a slight difference behind the scenes when you make the jump from 8.25% (or weight) to 10% (sold as Trade). You can simply ignore the change as it's basically meaningless for the user...........the only difference is behind the scenes. Just put "10" in and the rest is completed for you.
