    Question about selling Chlorine

    Hey guys, new here and need help with a question. I have always had good luck finding things out through forums so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

    I manage a warehouse company in TX and first of last year we had a customer move out and can not be contacted. I have some left over stock that is taking up space and need to find something to do with it.

    I have the following:
    216 - 50 LB bucket - "Pool Brand" multi functional chlorinating granules
    48 - 40 LB bucket - "Pool Brand" 3" chlorinating tablets
    540 - 1 QT bottle - "Tropiclear" Filter cleaner

    My main question is, Is this stuff LEGAL to sell??
    Where could I get ride of everything at a huge discount??

    Thank You guys for the help.

    No reason it wouldn't be legal. I'd talk to a pool store that is locally owned rather than a national chain to sell it. They'd probably be glad to have it.

    That's what I was thinking. From what I can see, retail value is 40k but would get rid of it for way less if possible.

    I agree with John. Your other options would be an ad in Craigslist, ebay or self advertised auction where buyers can come to warehouse location and bid.

    As far as legality is concerned, while I see no reason the products would be deemed illegal, you should seek advice from your attorney as to whether you are the legal owner of the supplies and can sell as your own to a third/unrelated party.

    One good thing is that it is getting ready to be spring so it is probably the best time of year to move it.

    No clue on what is or is not legal.
    Assuming you don't need a license to sell it and if you are willing to deal with a bunch of people... try Craigslist - it is free and I have sold all kinds of spare stuff there. Pick the right price and people will line up at your door.
