Does light have any kind of effect on chlorine? does it deteriorate it or 
anything? what happens to chlorine bleach when it's in direct sunlight? i 
that when chlorine bleach is in the sun, the killing power of it starts to 
weaken, but how and why does it do that? does pH have anything to with 
this? i've looked everywhere for info on this but cant find a thing that 
links to my question. can you help?
