I've decided to make an attempt at being just a little bit more echo friendly by buying my chlorine in refillable bulk. It's starting to bother me to have empty gallon jugs and cardboard boxes in my recycle bin every week. There are hurdles though, as always. If I choose to go the route of refillable cases of 4 1-Gal jugs, the cost per gallon is significantly higher than, say Wallmart or Home Depot throw-aways. From other threads on this site, I've become intrigued with the idea of buying 5 Gal Carboys. The problem with this is they seem to be very difficult to find in my area. The only place I've found them in Orange County/Los Angeles, CA area is Lincoln Equipment but again, pretty steep price (5 Gal -- $29).
Any other ideas on how to avoid disposal jugs while keeping the per gallon cost down??
Anybody in the Southern Cali area, know of another local place that sells carboys?
