    I get mine at Lowe's, but many hardware stores carry it. Generally in the paint section.

    This is one item that I actually buy at my local Pool store. My Lowes and Home Depot carry 15% acid and charge around $10 for a box of two, at Leslie's Pool the price is the same but the acid is 31%. Twice the strength for the same price.
