    New Chlorine Source?

    Came across this product on my local janitorial supplier's site. Here is the MSDS: http://www.spartanchemical.com/spart...glish/7004.pdf

    Looks like standard bleach to me, but what gets me is the strength. 10-15% is a big stretch. Also, it is selling for almost 60 dollars/5 gallon bucket. I guess if it was a true 15% solution, it might be an ok deal, but still not as good as the $1.63/gal for 5.25% at the local supermarket.

    High strength bleach is very common in the janitorial supplies market. Often the pricing is better than that, though that varies. Remember that higher strength bleach loses strength much more quickly than household bleach.

    I know the manufacturer makes the same product in 1-gallon jugs, and after doing more research, the advertised strength is 12.5%. Here is to hoping for a competitive price quote!

    Ugh, 46 dollars for 4 gallons of 12.5%. Oh well, thought I was on to something.
