Making bleach from “pool shock”….disinfectant and water purification!

Why would anyone produce their own bleach using the widely available pool treatment known as “Pool Shock”?

1) liquid bleach strength degrades over a few years rendering any stored bleach less effective over time

2) storing large amounts of liquid bleach requires large amount of space

3) 5 lbs of Pool Shock (calcium hypochlorite) costs $10.97 at Wal-Mart and makes 640 gallons of liquid bleach, which will treat 128,000 gallons of water.

4) 2 cents per gallon….i need no other reason!

5) cheap and convenient cleaning solution and water purification method

Here are a few links supplying all the necessary details:
