In my ongoing quest to locate new sources and pricing of liquid chlorine, I stopped by a local Leslieís Pool Supply. A friend that owns a pool (not a BBBír ) said that the woman that runs this store is very reliable. When I arrived she was beginning to help another customer, but asked me what I was looking for. The following is not a perfect quotation, but is pretty close to what transpired.
Me: Do you have liquid chlorine?
PSL (pool store lady): No, we donít carry it. We have the powder.
Me: Thanks, anyway, I am only interested in liquid chlorine.
PSL: You shouldnít use that in your pool. Itís not good for plaster pools.
PSL: Itís got like bleach in it. Itíll damage plaster.
Me: It is the same as bleach.
PSL: No, itís got lithium in it.
Me: Liquid chlorine just has sodium hypochlorite.
PSL: No itís not. We have sodium hypochlorite powder. (probably meant calcium hypochlorite???)
Me: Thanks Iíll stick with liquid.
PSL: Thatís bad for your pool. Iíll look it up here and show you. Itíll only take a minute.
Me: Thatís okay. Thanks anyway.
No point in stirring it up in front of her customer.
To think that I was once at the mercy of these folks!!
