Ru-Jun’s kiddie pool holds 275 gallons of water 6 ft diameter; ~ 1.3 feet deep). I’ve been cycling water through it every few days because it does get skuzzy both by particulates (even though I cover it up most nights) and biofilmy stuff. So I looked up what people do to keep them clean and people use chlorine, in the form of bleach. That volume calls for about 3 tablespoons of bleach. So I put that amount in tonight and mixed it up. The water that is in there right now was drawn Monday. That should keep it for a couple of days and then I’ll drain it again and set up some new chlorinated water.
