    Liquid chlorine

    So I have a question. Why is everyone using liquid chlorine now? Is it because you can't get tablets or shock or what? Just really curious. Is it better? Do you not leave a floating deal in it with tabs no more?

I was not even going to put one up this year since I plan to do a nicer metal frame next year, but I...

We manufacture oilfield chemicals and those are measure sticks for 55 gallon drums but I think they will do the job and they already have markings on them which is a plus. We have a good water base dye that we use in a few products that I...
