    The cost of bleach is a lot like the cost of gas...

    Theres no point in looking because youve got to have it.

    Not quite sure if you have a Meijer store by you, but I purchase mine there-10% at a cost of $10.00 for 4 gallons. My local pool supply store sells the same product for $20. ACO sells the same product for $12.00 for 4 gallons.

    I can only get 10% here too. How much do you have to adjust the mix if using 10% anyone have a sh% calculator or something?

    I use straight bleach and soap.No mixing.The kicker is how is your rig setup?Mine is setup to run straight bleach with the amount of hose I use and the injectors I have.

    The answer I think is 1% bleach to the surface.You do what you have to do to get that and stop worrying about whats in the tank.Unless you are gonna get a setup just like the guy answering the question.Which may be a $1000.00 rig or a $10,000.00 rig.

    When u say straight bleach do u mean 6% or 12%? Cuz I use straight 6% when I'm out of 12.

    12%.

    Your injector is gonna pull different ratios based on length of hose,size machine,size injector.You need to experiment with it to get it dialed in where you want it.

    Doesn't matter. What matters is that after all the dilutions you're running 0.75-1.0% to the wall.

    I apply with a 4 gpm machine and use one of Bob's injectors. I use straight 6% or break the 12.5 down to about half and half, then add the soap.
