Bleach in a pool I assume you mean amount of chlorine in Swimming Pools?
Chlorine treatment of swimming pools. Normally the the amount of Chlorine in the water is checked by test strips, which are normally part of a pool treatment test kit. The disposable test strips are dipped in the water and will change color, comparing the color against a test chart determines if more chlorine needs to be added. You will also need to test the acidity level of the water i.e. pH. The pH for pools is determined with another type of test strip in the kit.
Another Answer: Actually you can use common bleach in your pool as well if you like, although Chlorine tablets are the easiest and more economical to use. They dissolve slowly and maintain a more constant chlorine level in the pool. Also, an OTO test kit (which uses drops) is far more accurate than test strips. Hatawa.
The amount of bleach needed to shock a pool depends on the size of the pool. It is best to use a pool bleach that is specifically formulated for that purpose. The directions on the bottle should be followed for safety.
Definitely not. Use proper care when cleaning your pool
I do. Use half as much. Pool chlorine is 12.5% sodium hypochlorite Laundry bleach that I use is 6% sodium hypochlorite. Sometimes I dilute the pool chlorine by one part water to one part pool chlorine and use it just like regular laundry bleach.
It is possible to use household bleach in a pool but it can affect the chemical balance of the pool. It is recommended that chlorine be used instead.
Be careful of sanitizing a small wading pool with bleach. Why not empty and refill?
It is not recommended to put bleach in a pool at all. You put chlorine in them.
Yes. Bleach is a disinfectant.
You can use bleach in an inflatable pool, but it may eat away at the plastic overtime. It is best to use small amounts for one season only.
Yes you could, but beware it is much stronger.
4 cups as long as your ph is balanced
You should use about 15oz. if bleach to reach between 1.5-3.5ppm chlorine.Hope this helpRobert
Chlorine is cheaper. Bleach is only 6% hydrochloric acid (chlorine). Get a pool test kit & let pH determine wether or not you need to add any. Add small quantities & retest until you are where you need to be.
They use some kind of chlorine bleach to disinfect the dirty pool water.
The amount of bleach you add per gallon of water to a swimming pool depends on the size of the pool. For a small wading pool that is up to 100 gallons you would add 1/8th of a cup of bleach.
Household bleach should not be used to clean pool plaster, and may cause harm. However, using commercial strength bleach or an acid wash will not harm the pool plaster.
No, a salt water pool does not contain bleach.
No that's going to be bad for the swimming pool
Yes, bleach is Sodium Hypochlorite, or commonly referred to as liquid chlorine in the pool business.
No. It is a different bleach for the pool. To be more precise, whilst chlorine is chlorine, which is the active part of the bleach, the chlorine for swimming pools is a lot more concentrated than laundry bleach, so you are likely to put in more than you intended.
If the water is not green, somewhere around a gallon per 4,000 gallons of pool water should be sufficient to bring your chlorine level into range.
Standard laundry bleach works fine in a pool. You should be sure to get plain bleach, not scented. The chemical in bleach is exactly the same as the chemical in pool chlorine but is generally about half the concentration. Most bleach is 6% sodium hypochlorite while chlorine for pools is 10-12%. So generally you would use about twice as much bleach as chlorine. The amount you add must be determined using a test kit to determine your current level of chlorine. An online calculator to use to determine the amount of bleach to add is at http://www.poolcalculator.com. As an example, if you have 0 ppm chlorine now and want to raise it to 4 ppm in a 23000 gallon pool, you would need to add 196 ounces (about 1-1/2 gallons) of bleach.
