    15% liquid Chlorine

    Went to the local Ace Hardware to inquire about the percentage of their liquid chlorine I got the deer in the headlights look. I went back later to see the owner/manager about the same question and he said it was 15%. As I was walking away he said it was the same as everybody else sold. I know of no pool store in my area that sells 15%. I buy 10-1/2% at Pinch-A-Penny. My guess is that his is 10-1/2% but how would you know? If he is correct and he is selling 15% I have hit the jack pot but then again how do I know? Is there any way to test the percentage?

    The percentage will be listed on the label. It's possible that it's 15% if it's very fresh but not likely. It leaves the plant around 16 to 18%.

    Testing concentration requires very precise measurments, or special instruments which isn't usually worth the trouble. There's a way to dilute it and test it but it's not very precise.

    There are ways to measure the concentration but in practice it is easier to add it to the pool and see what happens that way.

    I have not bought any so I don't know what the label states. It's just amazing to me that folks don't know details of what they sell. Their price is about 1 dollar more per 2-1/2 gallons than Pinch-A-Penny but with Pinch-A-Penny 45 minutes from the house and 3.75 gas Ace (in my backyard) is a better deal even at the same percentage. Thanks for the replies.
