    Liquid Chlorine

    Quick question, As I am about to assume service on my new pool, I have been checking out what the local pool supply has. They Sell HASA SANI-Clor in refillable containers. Is that just regular Chlorine like bleach but at 12.5%?

    Thanks

    Re: Liquid Chlorine

    Probably. Chlorine, bleach, "shock", and "sani-chlor" are all just sodium hypochlorite. It's all the same thing just at different strengths in different shiny packages. Look at the active ingredient on the box/jug.

    Look what I found! I bet this helps!

    Make sure there is high turn over as it can/will degrade over time in the sun. My place gets a new tank about twice a week during the summer.

    Re: Liquid Chlorine

    I like the concept of using refillable containers. I know store bleach can be cheaper but I got sick of the large, numerous containers. I wish a store by me did this. I don't mind the extra cost of pool store bleach b/c of the convenience and higher concentration.

    Yes. The HASA stuff is just extra-strength bleach. It's what I use.

    Ha! I can get 6-packs easily. Wish I could get HASA here in IL. I recycle my bleach containers with much guilt!

    Re: Liquid Chlorine

    That is another reason I was willing to get our new pool.......A Ace Hardware was built that is very easy for me to get to for my chlorine. I get four 2.5 gal refillable jugs at a time. Summer time they last me 12 days. Winter=lasting forever! LOL

    I use those 4 packs of Hasa chlorine as well. That one of the 4 chemicals I buy from our pool store. Takes me about 8 days to use it all in the summer.

    Brian, my pool store over here in League City stocks the 4 packs of HASA 12.5%, Glacier Pool Supplies. They also have another store around Spring.

    Can you pm me? I don't know if there are rules on the forum where we cannot discuss these kinds of things. Last thing I want is to get kicked off this forum!!!

    I took out your email addy and put in for him to pm you BUT you can talk about where you buy bleach/chlorine, etc on the board. It might be helpful for others in your area.

    Re: Liquid Chlorine

    Ok, thanks...I buy 10% liquid chlorine at Home Depot for about $4.75/gallon.

    By the way, if you get a Home Depot credit card, you will get 5% off of anything you buy there. All you have to do is use your credit card and remember to ask for the 5%; otherwise, they sometimes won't give you the discount. You will get the 5% discount right then and there.

    Re: Liquid Chlorine

    Make sure to check the date codes on Lowes and Home Depot as they do not always have a high turn over.

    We had one member buy enough chlorine for a SLAM. That is a LOT of chlorine..........when she added it and tested nothing happened! It was like she had not added anything to her pool. We had her check the date code............the chlorine was over 2 YEARS old! It had degraded so much that it was back to "water"! They gave her her money back. She went to Walmart and got the store brand 8.25% and got her pool clear.
