Instead of making a patassium chloride soltution with water to make chlorate. could you make a soltution with patassium chloride and bleach, would this make chlorate production faster( since there is already hypochlorite in the bleach)?

And why do you need KCl at all, then?

Edit: from bleach only you will get NaClO3, but when you stop the process, you will have to add a soluble salt of potassium, to precipitate the KClO3
