Without upsetting the mods (please delete if this is the wrong place/not allowed)....
I have the opportunity to bid a project that involves selling a municipal pool about 1600 lbs of cal hypo. Retail on this stuff is about $3 a pound (from what I can tell). I am afraid that this will end up limiting me from getting the job - so would you lowball the bid to get the job, or charge what is necessary to make a buck and risk losing the other part?
What would you pay for this stuff?
