    2016 bleach prices

    Is the Menard's price advertised in their current flyer? My Menard's still lists it as $3.99/bottle

    Bleach Prices 2014

    I went to Menard's (Chicago-land area) 5/13, and the BOGO sale had ended the previous day or 2. I bought 15 gallons, checked out under full price ($4/gallon), and asked if it had ended at the service desk. They gaciously adjusted the price down for me. However, I either told them I had 17...

We don't have a heater yet, but is there a best time to purchase based on typical sale cycles? Again with a gas...

    Is solar heating worth it?

    For my solar cover, I bought a reel pretty quickly after using it. It was a pain for 1 person to get off, and I always got it pretty dirty in the process. With the reel, it dumps most of the collected leaves right into the water. That being said, it is a lot quicker to get them off the...
