    Chlorine Jug Transport Idea

    Hi,

    I found a local place that refills 20L jug of chlorine. However, using it around the pool is not practical. Has anyone came up with a method for ease of use with such a large container?

    I like the second option, but it says do not use with non corrosive liquids. Have you ever used it or know someone that had success using it with LC?

    Maybe one of these:
    DEF Hand Pump for 5 Gallon Drum/Pail - NX2025


    They seem to have various adapters to fit differing containers also - look further down on that page.
    Also a Google search for - liquid chlorine transfer pump - may elicit more options.

    I use 5 gallon jugs to store my chlorine and I use one of these.

    Hand Siphon

    Amazon has them as well - Pump

    I just pump out whatever I need into a 1 qt measuring cup and then pour it into my bucket or right into my pool. Just take the siphon to your pool with you and pump some water through it to rinse it out. Works well for under $5

    I have no idea how one of THESE will stand up to chlorine but might be worth an investigation if you decide to try one let us know how it works out.

    Edit... Never mind I see it has stainless steel inside it, I think the chlorine would corrode that in short order.
