    Baking Soda - 12lb bags - Where can I get it?

    Anyone know where this can be found? I need to add 32lbs to my pool, would rather buy the 12lb bags if I can find them. Didn't know if BJ's, Costco or Sam's carry them? I'm guessing i'm not going to find in my supermarket.

    I live in the Baltimore, MD area if that helps.

    Thanks,

    Vince

    Sam's carries them, I would think Costco would too....

    I've gottent them at costco but if you need that much price a 50 lb bag from the pool store. It's often cheaper!

    In my area at Sam's Club, baking soda is ~50 cts/lb in the food section/frky goods for Arm & Hammer (12 lb bag). In the same store, alkalinty adjuster is $1/lb at Sam's in the outdoor section with pool salt and trichlor. Arm & Hammer probably makes them both, but if they didn't, I would take the food quality anyway.

    In my area I get Baking Soda and pool salt at Sam's Club. Our Costco does not stock any other pool chemicals aside from the chlorine pucks.
