    Best Places to Buy Liquid Chlorine

    Thanks for the info! I had never heard of Ollie's until I looked at this thread tonight. I will have to check it out, especially since so close to me in Lewisville. That makes it the same price as Home Depot if you buy 4 3-packs. Since I do not have a cool place to store it without bringing it...

    Best Places to Buy Liquid Chlorine

    If only...and not just for chlorine! I love HEB but the only ones near DFW are in Burleson, Waxahachie, Cleburne, and Stephenville. That is nearly an hour from me in north DFW without traffic. Years ago there used to be one in Plano near my work but it is long gone for 15 years or more. It is a...

    Best Places to Buy Liquid Chlorine

    Thanks for the info. Never heard of them before. I am in Denton area, so not a good enough deal to drive over for chlorine but maybe they will eventually open one closer--Carrollton/Lewisville/Denton would all be reasonably close for me. I will have to pop in just to check out what they are...

    Best Places to Buy Liquid Chlorine

    amryan...looks like Home Depot, at least to start the season, will be my go-to source. Winco and sometimes Aldi had been my previous go-to, but with the switch to 6% and same or higher prices, the three-jug of 10% for $10 is the best deal I have found in DFW. I am wondering if this change to 6%...

    Need new LED pool light

    Hey Z... Sorry so long getting back. Life kind of got crazy busy all at once. All went well with the gathering and the light was a hit. I went with the Pentair Amerlite 500w old style housing. With the 15 foot cord (all I need), it was $169 and got the following LED color changing lamp with...

    Need new LED pool light

    Additional info on my previous posts about "what really is the difference between the bulbs"... Here is the INYO bulb, as they sell on Amazon too https://www.amazon.com/Pureline-Pool-Bulb-Color-Changing/dp/B078TK9SPB Then these bulbs seem identical in every way, just badged...

    Need new LED pool light

    Yep, thanks Z... I am pretty sure the solution I am going with is a whole new Amerlite housing that I can change bulbs. While I like INYO and have purchased things in the past, when you separate the LED color change bulb from the package (at $159 by itself), the cost for the Amerlite 120v...

    Feeling slight electrical current in pool...bonding seems intact. Thoughts?

    Interesting thread that I have been following and hoping the OP jumps back on. More importantly (not to the OP I am sure), Sammy where is that cooler weather and rain you were asked to send south??? I raise TSTEX from Houston area with my 109 and 110 the past two days in DFW. I did not sign on...

    Best Places to Buy Liquid Chlorine

    Yeah, I don't feel too ripped off SCDAREN if I can get it for $2 to $3 a gallon, 8.25% to 10%. Of course, your 12.5% at $2.50 a gallon works out pretty good on the pure bleach quotient. Of course, I have no place to store quantity. One guy posted from Houston area about getting it for a really...

    Need new LED pool light

    Greetings Z... I hope it is OK if I jump on your thread, as I am in a similar situation and since the EVERYTHING ELSE section gets less "love" than some other parts, maybe my bump will get more eyes. Plus, the answer we both are seeking (or getting confirmation) is probably the same. To the...

    Best Places to Buy Liquid Chlorine

    Hey Hart... Yeah, it seems that Winco has switched to selling 8.25% 121 oz under a "Top Job" label. Date codes at Winco in Denton and Lewisville are fresh and it seems to work the same. As long as it stays at $2, it will continue to be my go-to. Back up is the 10%, 128 oz three pack at HDepot...

    Best Places to Buy Liquid Chlorine

    Geez, wish I was closer to H-Town...but the drive from DFW would definitely eat up all the savings! LOL Will do a search for someone locally that might do something like that. Thanks for sharing!

    My guess would be that you are correct with your date assessment. Good deal? Not a bad deal, although I can find it cheaper near me in DFW area. But only slightly cheaper. Just depends on what else is around you. I do not know KC and what other stores may be available to you. As with all...

    Frog habitat

    That all depends on a lot of factors. Do a full round of tests including your calcium hardness (CH). I wouldn't be too concerned about your PH or Total Alkalinity as long as you don't run them off the charts one way or another (meaning no reason to try to LOCK IN 7.6 PH or 80-100 TA until you...

    Frog habitat

    Yeah, don't add to skimmer. Bucket mix works. But I had to add some recently and did the sock method...within day and half it was completely dissolved from sock. Of course I wasn't adding 8 lbs. I still think this is one time where using tri-chlor tabs in a floater for a few weeks or month is...
