    Local Liquid Chlorine Price Increase

    I went to get my 10 gallons(2 5 gallon cans) today. Paid $12ish as usual. Notice on the desk of an increase to $14.00 Sept 1st and then on Jan. 1st an increase to $17.

    So what is everyone else seeing for 5 gallons of 12.5% and are you being notified of an increase?

    Noticed the 3 pack of 6% - 182oz jugs from Sams has jumped almost a dollar. From the mid $6 range to the mid $7.

    Walmart still has 174 oz 6% at $2.54 each. Not bad. Sams for us is 100 miles away so with gas prices the way they are, the cost increase of a few cents for me is very manageable.

    Luckily gas is not a factor for me in this equation. I drop my wife at work < 1/8 mile from the place I get it.

    It will continue to increase at least over the next few months. One of the major ingredients (caustic soda) is in very short supply.

    My Aldi raised the 6% bleach from 99 cents to 1.09.
    When my husband will get his raise this August, I bet you, it will not be 10%. Everything has gone up at least 10%, exept his pay.

    My supplier for 5 gallons of 12.5% went up to a bit over $12.00. I think I'll just be buying gallons of bleach that's a bit closer to my house.

    $2.40 per gallon of 12.5% is equivalent to 89 cents for a 96-ounce (3/4 gallon) jug of chlorine of $1.78 for a 1.5 gallon jug of 6% bleach (which is 6.17% trade, equivalent to the 12.5% number for chlorinating liquid). I doubt that you'll find such a good deal on bleach. Of course, I'm not factoring in your cost of driving to get it.

    That is what I was looking for. I was assuming transportation costs. I guess it could be a combo though.

    Re: Local Liquid Chlorine Price Increase

    I'm getting HASA 12.5% (fresh) from a near by local pool store for $10.99 for 4 gallons. It's generally much over 12.5% as it's filled within 50 miles of the store and shipped in on a regular basis. They claim it's filled with 18%, and I honestly don't doubt that. It would have to be filled with higher for them to say it's really 12.5% when you purchase it, otherwise it would start to fall below 12.5%. I've noticed my bleach demand going way down using it.
