    As far as I'm concerned, this Menards place is fictional.

    We hear this or similar every Summer, yet I've never seen a Menards.

    That's because you are in the "Great State" of Texas. Gotta go up Ohio kinda way....

    You have HASA all over the place - I'd settle for that.

    Re: Cheap Menards Chlorine

    I picked up 24 jugs (equivalent of 6 cases) last weekend. I may pick up some more. Need to keep track of my total usage this summer. At $2 a gallon for 12.5% it's easy to buy too much. Last year I only had 4 left over that sat in the basement all winter.

    For the uninitiated, Menards is a home and garden store much like Home Depot/Lowes in the Midwest with locations as far east as Ohio, west as eastern Wyoming, north as Canadian border in MN and south as Missouri.

    To make you all further jealous, we also have Fleet Farm stores in our area. They are exclusive to MN, WI and IA and are farm supply, home and garden stores. They routinely have 12.5% for sale most of the summer at $2.50 per gallon.

    But just rmember, to get these wonderful 12.5% prices you must be willing to shovel snow for a good portion of the winter. While I wasn't swimming, I was on the lounger by the pool with a glass of wine this winter.

    Is that hole for ice fishing? I've heard of that sport but never knew how it worked.

    Re: Cheap Menards Chlorine

    BJ's Wholesale Club around here sells 4 gallons of 12.5% for $12.99. I thought that was a good deal, but a BOGO would crush it.

    Re: Cheap Menards Chlorine

    I get 1 gallon of 12.5% for $2.99 from Ocean State Job Lot here in Connecticut. Cheapest cost per fl.oz hat I can find around here for chlorine or bleach. But then again I did have to deal with a lot of snow this past winter. BTW OSJL have locations in all New England states and some parts on New York and New Jersey.

    Re: Cheap Menards Chlorine

    I guess Tx has some pact against cheap bleach for the masses.

    It begs the question for me though, why do these places have it? Are they targeting pool owners?
