Is it a good idea to buy pool chemicals in bulk as I have a coupon or as they go on sale towards the end of the season? I know chlorine/bleach loses strength, so I wouldn't buy that. Specifically, I am asking about things like CYA, pH Down, etc. I have a basement so they would be cool and dry throughout the winter.
Secondly, where do you store any leftover reagents from the test kit? I have read that people keep them in the refrigerator over the winter? (My basement stays between 60-70 degrees year round, which is where they are now, in a dark closet.)
I know I'm planning way in advance here...but as much as I want summer to SLOW DOWN I know it won't!!
