    Cheap Chlorine

    I tried a search for this topic, but I appologize if this isn't the right spot or appropriate. I know I read one thread discussing chlorine costs. I thought I'd put it out there. Two times in the past several weeks I've purchased 8.25% bleach from Walmart for $0.99. That's 67% off and seems to me to be about as cheap as it comes. Any thoughts?

    Those dirty suckers...it's 121oz. They increased the concentration and lowered the volume. I think it's still a good deal at $0.99

    0.99/(121*0.0825)= $0.10/oz NaClO...awesome price!

    Re: Cheap Chlorine

    Was looking for chlorine at Wal-Mart today ... No 10% anywhere and no big jugs of 8.25% anywhere ... too many TFPers around here

    Had to go to Lowe's.

    Re: Cheap Chlorine

    My local pool store sells 10.5% chlorine in 2.5 gallon carboys for $5.80. You have to buy the empty carboys for $5.80 each the first time, then refills are $5.80. That works out to be $.17/oz and that's the lowest price I've seen around here.
