    Liquid chlorine

    I've been buying 10% liquid chlorine from Wal mart for 3.60/gallon. I live in Phoenix area. Anyone know where to purchase more affordably?

    Re: Liquid chlorine

    I was for $2.50 at Walmart. Now it's closer to your price so the $15/5gal of 12.5% at the pool store is cheaper but a PITA.
    Pool installed 8/2015. 30' round Radiant pool. 21,000 gallons. 200# sand. Hayward Vari flow XL valve. 1.5hp Hayward Power-Flo Matrix running 10 hours/day in two periods. TF100 with speed stir. Sun all day, south side of house
    Order test kit TF-100 w/ Speed Stir and then Poolmath Calculator --- RECOMMENDED LEVELS --- POOL SCHOOL --- Algae? --- Chlorine/CYA CHART.

    Re: Liquid chlorine

    Several weeks ago, Menards had a great deal on 12.5% chlorine. After confirming date and storage conditions, I bought enough to last the season. It's working well per PoolMath dosage instructions.

    Re: Liquid chlorine

    Look for a HASA dealer in your area...bulk 12.5% around $3.60, and I find it fresh and usually much stronger around 14% is a guess.

    +1 on looking for a HASA dealer. They recycle the jugs - 4 gallons in a nice yellow carry bin. I think it's about $12.50 a case - though your local price may vary.

    Last week my pool store was out of the HASA, told me would be in later that day, went back a couple of hours later, just unloaded the HASA, picked up a case....this stuff is strong, I figure it is 16%-17% based on Pool Math, it always seems when they get in fresh supply, the concentration is up there.

    I called my two local pool stores. One sells HASA 12.5% in recyclable containers for $18/case ($4.50/gal). The other sells another brand 10% for $24/case. I also contacted HASA directly through their web form and got a response. It turns out we have one of their manufacturing facilities right here in town. Too bad I can cut out the pool store middle man and buy direct.

    Re: Liquid chlorine

    There's been another thread ongoing for a bit longer on this topic. Lots of good info in there on bleach prices.

    A&M Corsons carries 12.5% HASA chlorine. Their turnover is high and the chlorine is always fresh. Location which may be convenient to you: Alma School & Elliott or McQueen & Warner.

    Publix has a soccer family coupon at the service desk for $5 off of $30. Their store brand of 8.25% is $2.89 so times 11 = $31.90 - $5....$2.43 a gallon

    You sure it is 12.5%? Our Costco sells the 3 pack for $9.45 but it's 8.3%.

    Yep this is my current preference as well, be careful on the dates however since I have seem some old stock sitting on the shelves at some locations. We have two frys near us and one has a pool store right next door. This location has the old stock sitting on the shelf which I suspect has something to do with the pool store being right next door. The other location routinely has week old stock
