    Where to buy 12% liquid chlorine in shreveport, la or Marshall, texas??

    I can't seem to find anyone who carries the higher percentage liquid chlorine...... Any one out there who lives near shreveport, louisiana or Marshall, texas with a location that sells it?

    Wish I knew. That seems to be something that is very difficult to get in Texas. There are a handful of specialty shops here in DFW that specialize in sanitation/janitorial products that supposedly sell the higher concentration. But it's not worth the effort and drive time IMHO, especially since the strength of grocery store bleach was increased to 8.25%. The best I've seen is 10% at Home Depot & Lowes, but be careful...The batch I got was apparently sitting around on the shelf for a long time. As a result, it had degraded in strength which defeats the purpose of buying it.

    If you have your heart set on 12%, I would focus your search on the Louisiana side of the border since I'm inclined to believe that some sort of state regulation is in play here, based on my experience. For example, when I visit friends/family in GA and FL, I've seen 10-12% liquid chlorine in pool stores and at BJ's warehouse.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.

    Why not just get 8.25% bleach? Easier to find and does the same thing...

    Yes, the pool stores ask me why I'd want that....like I'm crazy. When I say I want I stabilized chlorine they say "oh we have tabs with no stabilizer"

    I'll bet they do.... They have Cal-hypo in them, so later in the season they can sell you scale-remover, or tell you TDS is too high and you need to drain.

    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!
