    Storage question

    Hey guys, new to the site.
    Ive searched regarding storage but couldn't find a solid answer.

    I want to purchase a deck box or Rubbermaid outdoor storage bin to store my chemicals in. something like this.

    Amazon.com: Rubbermaid 5F22 Large Deck Box with Seat: Patio, Lawn Garden

    I know i cant keep the MA in there i will keep that separate. but will my liquid shock, tabs, and DE be ok in this?
    it will be in the shade entire day.

    Thanks for your help....

    Heat degrades chlorine--opened or not. I keep mine in a hot garage in Texas and buy about 2 weeks supply at a time to keep it fresher.

    Hey, first post - why don't you keep your muriatic acid in the storage bin? Fire risk with the clorine tabs? Thanks,

    I have a poolside cabinet (in the shade) to store some pool items. I keep only the bottle of Chlorine that I have started in there, the rest I keep (with other chemicals & my test kit) in a closet in the basement where it is nice and cool.
