    Cheapest Bleach in Houston?

    I've seen a few people from Houston posting and was wondering where everyone has found the cheapest bleach.

    So far, the best I have found is Aldi's 8.25% which is $1.29 for 64 oz.

    I would love to find something cheaper, hopefully more concentrated and in larger jugs.

    Any suggestions?

    I was at Walmart yesterday and I only saw their 8.25% for $2.98. Maybe my store just gets the cheap stuff

    Texas is one of those state that bulk 10/12.5% is usually readily available. I would call around to local pool stores and see if they have it. Usually I would direct you to the HASA dealer list, but apparently they have not expanded to Houston yet.

    It is in Houston, not sure about any other metro areas, but it is not anywhere near me outside of buying in bulk 55 gallon drums. You can get 10% from janitor suppliers, but it's outrageous in price.

    Typically I go to Wal-Mart or HEB for the standard generic bleach at just under $3. Just convenient for me.

    The price should be based on chlorine per ounce, not total price.

    adli's is the cheapest per oz i've found, with lowes 10% being next cheapest. costco is in 3rd place.
