Osirissail is right on this - be VERY careful of bleach. We find bleach plastic bottles to biodegrade rapidly and you don't want a bunch of bleach spilling all over.

buy your bleach at a pool supply store, the bleach is 2 1/2 times more concentrated, thereby taking up less space, and the jugs are heavy duty plastic (retails about 1.80 per gallon)
