Question on using bleach to purify water.

I have two big sources of readily available water if the need ever arises. A pool and a pond.

If as a last resort I have to use water from either, is there a general rule of thumb regarding purifying a gallon of water using household bleach? Say I put a gallon of pond water in a pot or clean milk jug, how much bleach to use and how long to let it sit before one could drink the water?

Each choice has its own problems. Don't use the pool water for drinking as there are other chemicals there which can be a problem. A proper answer is too long to get into in a forum post.
