    Question Storing liquid Chlorine

    Im not sure if it has been mentioned on here before couldnt find it in a search . I was thinking in my situation where i need to buy 10X5 gallon drums about every 8-10 weeks of 10% LC would it be worthwhile diluting some of it (maybe 5 drums) as soon as i get it down to say 5% as it would store better and not drop % as quick for the first 4 weeks i guess it wouldnt be too much of a problem but looking at the chart storing it at 30 oc daytime tempetures could loose a reasonable % by the end of its use . dont know if anyone else has done this or if its practical to do . I cant get it locally so i have to get it shipped in . then it needs to be a reasonable amout to becuase of shipping costs the manufacture date on the drums makes it about 4 weeks old by the time i get it

    Re: Storing liquid Chlorine

    Is there a way to store it in a cooled location or at least a shaded location? If you decide to dilute it you need to use pure water. Either distilled or Deminerlized (R/O). If you use tap water it could actually degrade the bleach itself.

    Sounds like you may be a candidate for a swcg.

    Re: Storing liquid Chlorine

    Thanks for the reply I did wonder about tap water causing it to degrade even more . I will get a swcg when funds permit just not yet .it is stored out of sun light and it is cooler on a night time which is about the best I can do at the mo

    The degradation from the water source happens if there are any metals in the water, even small amounts. Metals catalyze the breakdown reaction of concentrated chlorine.
