    Beautiful pool!

    As an aside, can I ask where you got 12.5% bleach so cheap? I'm new to the TFP method, and I've been searching for the cheapest bleach. The best price I've found so far is 121 oz jug of 8.5% bleach for $2.57 at Wal-Mart.

    We have a chain of stores here in Massachusetts called "Ocean State Job Lot." I've been buying 12.5% bleach there for 5 years now. It's always been $2.99 a gallon and has always been stable and reliable.

    Thanks! My Wal-Mart has that same deal in their pool aisle. Can't believe I missed it. If my calculations are right that alone could save me around $85.00 this season. Thanks!
