As of this moment, I store my pool chemicals on the side of the house right next to all the pool pump & equipment. The area is fairly well shaded although it still gets some direct sun maybe about 4 or 5 hours per day at most. This time of year, I go through my liquid chlorine fairly quickly so I don't have the same jugs for more than a few weeks (I only buy 3 at a time). I go through the jugs of acid much less frequently, so I guess those stick around a couple of months or so. But I have heard that it's not good to keep the chlorine jugs where they get too much sun exposure. And as for the other chemicals (powders), I have typically only bought them as I need them, but now that I'm learning the BBB method, I suppose I will be keeping a little extra on hand.
So how do you keep/store your chemicals? Do you have some kind of storage unit or box outside? Garage? Please describe.
