    Anyone in San Antonio? chemical question

    I cant find liquid chlorine anywhere. Have you found it? Or happen to know if walmart, heb, lowes, or home depot has the best prices on bleach? I'm heading into town and would rather not have to stop at all of them. Thx!

    Well for anyone in this area, all I could find was 6% bleach, nothing stronger even at lowes or hd. It was $2.99 for 182oz at HEB. The MA was $7.47 a gal, no idea if that's a good deal.

    The plan is to check FC tonight and if it drops any add bleach. Am I on the right track? I'm going to do the OCLT tonight as well. I can see the bottom but pool isn't as clear as I'd like it to be. Should I do anything else?

    Thanks for your guidance!

    I understand your issue. We don't have access to any liquid stronger than 6% around here either.

    The lowes at 1604 and blanco always seems to have it. I also got some at the HD 281 and Bitters, and i-10 deZavala...

    Theres also a pool store on 281N near Thousand Oaks... They have 12% (haven't bought there however)
