    Decent place to buy liquid chlorine on Long Island NY

    Found a good place for liquid chlorine if you live in Nassau or western Suffolk. Twin County Pools located in Farmingdale (they have a website). They have a lot of commercial and residential accounts so they have a large turn over and get deliveries of fresh chlorine everyday. They sell it as 12.5% but the guy tells me it's probably more like 15% since it's coming directly from the manufacturer. A 5 gallon carboy costs $20.35 with tax or 3.75 per gal. plus tax. You need to buy a carboy (a one time expense). They sold me a used one in great shape for $12. It's not as cheap as some of the prices I've seen on this forum, but I've been looking around for a while now and this is the best deal I've found for this area.

    Thanks. I have been looking for a bulk source on LI. In the past, I have been purchased 4 gallon cases of 12.5% at BJ's but they did not carry it very long this season. Last year, they had it in stock almost the entire pool season.

    I was buying it at BJs at the beginning of the season too, but they ran out a while ago. Tough to say how fresh the stuff was also, at least here there's no question.

    edit: our carboy is 2.5 gallons whereas yours is 5, no real price difference there.

    I miss Long Island sometimes, but not at times like this! I've found Ollie's had it last year, and again this year for $2.99 per gallon. I use it exclusively, and the results indicate that it's still 12.5%- The Pool Calculator has been spot on. There are some Ollie's up that way, call & see if they carry it. http://www.olliesbargainoutlet.com/

    Thanks, checked out your link, unfortunately the closest one is upstate 70 miles away. We don't have any stores like Ollies, Menards or Pinch a Penny here. Guess everything in NY is just more expensive

    Maybe the Ocean State Job Lot store in North Babylon, NY is close enough. (http://oceanstatejoblot.com/locate/) One gallon jugs of 12.5 liquid chlorine is selling for $2.99 here in CT. I just bought 12 jugs today with a date lot code of July 17th on them.

    Thanks, that's not too far at all. I looked at their weekly flyer online, just like you said $2.99 a gallon. I'll check it out
