    That's a great price. Are you sure it's 12.6% ? Usually 12.5%.

    Sounds like a great price. I've been buying 12.5% from Menard's for $10/case of four and thought that was a very good price. Where are you getting it for $8?

    If you watch Menard's ads, they sometimes have the cases BOGO in mid-May.

    Re: Chlorine sale

    Biggest potential problem is that high strength chlorine degrades rapidly in heat. Freshness is important as are storage conditions. Closeout bargains can be less than they appear if the strength is lower than expected. Try some and see if it reacts as you expect compared to standard bleach.

    Re: Chlorine sale

    We don't seem to have many options for liquid chlorine in Oklahoma, I found some at ACE hardware for $4.49 a gal but it's only 10%! Bleach seems to cost more here also, I get the 3 pack of Clorox at Sams for $9.00 a box, that's still $3.00 per gal. What do you other Okies out there do for chlorine?

    Re: Chlorine sale

    I just bought a twin pack (2 gallons total) of 10% at Lowe's for $6.86 yesterday in SoCal. That's a little better than 8% Costco Clorox or Walmart Great Value.

    Re: Chlorine sale

    Like2lean, I am in Yukon and just go to WalMart.....I think it is like 3.50 per gallon. I don't use that much so once a week I get a gallon, maybe two. Will start checking around though, you have sparked my interest.

    I will say, if freshness is a concern, never had any issues with weak bleach from my local WalMart.
