    Bleach prices?

    What are the prices where you live? I can't seem to find anything under $3 a gallon. Fleet Farm has .99 a gallon but its "lavender". Lol

    Wow. Those are high prices. Not knowing exactly what strength everyone is talking here, I saw a deal at Walmart that was a three-jug carton, 3.78 qt., not sure if it was 6% or 8.25 %, for $5.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I get Clorox for 3.50 at 8.25% at HEB. If I go to sams club I can get 3 big jugs for around 9.00 but there is not one that is real convenient.

    That is what I use, when I need it. It is well priced.

    That sounds like a great price. I get the same amount of 12% for $20 and consider it a decent price
