Quick question, is this the Clorox that @Nitro was referring to?

Basically yes. It is a 6% sodium hypochlorite with added water clarifiers to prevent dirt from depositing back on clothes in the laundry. However, these very same chemicals are also used as water clarifiers in pools and spas so they will have no negative impact. House brand bleach is normally cheaper then Clorox and just as effective. I buy bleach at Walmart or the grocery store and buy their brand. However, because of Covid-19 the number of bottles of bleach you can buy is often limited so pool chlorine at 10% or 12.5% might be a more viable option, depending on how much you need. For a spa a one gallon jug will last a long time and you can also use it in the laundry or around the house. Just make sure it's a disinfecting bleach with no scents, thickeners, soaps, or other additives (except Poly(Diallyldimethylammonium Chloride) or Polycrylic acid,which are the clarifiers. Besides sodium hypochlorite and water  you will also often find sodium chloride, sodium hydroxide, sodium carbonate, and/or sodium chlorate listed in the ingredients. These are all normal and are either byproducts of manufacture or storage of the product and are nothing to worry about.
