How much bleach to use or add in a kiddie pool?
A regular household bleach like Clorox usually contains 6.0% sodium hypochlorite solution that includes about 5.7% available chlorine by weight. It’s not as strong as chlorine, but it’s non-toxic, safe, cheaper, and a convenient source of chlorine for water treatment in your kiddie pool. It’s suitable to disinfect your pool since it’s liquid and has no insoluble particles in them.
Bleach would not only sanitize your pool, but do you know that chlorine could not get rid of algae-like bleach does?
When using bleach, use 1/8 cup per 100 gallons of new water. Just mix your required amount of Clorox Regular Bleach with 2 gallons of water and scatter over the surface of your kiddie pool. You need to be able to mix it uniformly and evenly with the pool water. Empty small pools with 50 gallons or less daily. Bleach would not harm plastic pools and inflatable pools.
To explain further, you could use around 8 drops of bleach per gallon to sanitize the water of your kiddie pool efficiently. Know how much gallons of water your kiddie pool has so you could calculate how much you need to put in.
You only need to add only enough bleach to your kiddie pool to be able to maintain its chlorine, which should be between 1 and 2 parts per million (PPM). You need to test the ph levels that should be between 7.2 and 7.8, to ensure the water is safe for the little ones.
It’s best only to use regular bleach without any scent. Also, nobody must go back to the pool. It would only be after 3 days that you put bleach in it or not until the chlorine residual is between 1 to 3 ppm.
Bleach would kill germs very effectively, but the dirt tracks would remain. If your kiddie pool is smaller, you could brush it with a non-toxic cleaner when there’s no water in it and wash it down with a hose and let it dry completely until you let your kid use it again.
