    Has anyone used the Clorox Outdoors?

    First saw this last night in Walmart. $2.98 for a 96 oz jug. I looked at the label, but never could see the concentration. The website was no help either. If it's % is higher than the regular 6%, I guess it would be easier than continually hunting the 182 oz jugs. Seems Walmart is almost always low on stock or out completely.

    I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people...I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    Don't use it. It contains more than just bleach.

    Hmmmmm.

    MSDS for regular bleach and the outdoor both show 5 - 10%. The outdoor shows to have several more ingredients than the regular.

    Think I'll stick with the Great Value stuff....

    Either go earlier in the day to get GV, shop for the 10% in the garden or toy section or come back while they do the the stocking after 10 pm...

    Nope. Never been there before.

    The wife and I usually get to Wallyworld after 11pm. Many times they don't restock it for a couple of days. I can only guess there are a lot of pool owners around here.

    The Outdoor and No Mess and Easy Pour and Splashless bleaches all have thickening agents in them that you do not want in your pool and that would cause foaming problems if you used it.

    This shows the extras in the outdoor formula

    I have been purchasing mine at Sam's Club.

    3 182oz bottles for 8 bucks.
    Not sure if the price is great ~ but I like the bigger jugs in the boxes ~ makes it easier for to load and offload. And I just stacked the boxes so I don't have loose bottles all over the place.

    $2.66 per bottle is a good price. Walmart and Target have them for ~$3 each around here.

    The storage aspect of those jugs is a good idea, I am going to take a look at Sams.
