    12% chlorine prices around the country

    1 gal is $4.98 and 15 gal carboys are $60.15 + $35 for the refillable container deposit. How does this compare to what some of you are paying?

    I think I'll keep shopping. What is your source?

    $11.99 for a 5 gal 12.5% returnable container with an $8 deposit per container. I usually pick up 2 or 3 and store in a cool shaded location.

    None of the leading pool stores in NW Arkansas sell liquid chlorine -
    The prices in my original post are from a local chemical supply company.

    2.5 gallon refills (10.5% around here) are $4.25, up from 2.49 in 2006, but down from 4.50 (leslies was 4.50 but now they're down to 4.25 as is pinch a penny). you can almost always get them buy 2 get 1 free, plus there's the punchcard that gives you one free after 10 refills.

    My local Leslie's doesn't carry liquid chlorine either. They said its a dangerous chemical. When I mentioned the fact that it was the same as bleach I was told that they are different and that adding bleach from the grocery store is bad for the pool. I just smiled and left it at that.

    wow, in houston? that's surprising. I'm glad everyone carries it here...
    it is a dangerous chemical...but so are lots of things that are readily available (do they sell muriatic acid? take a whiff of that one time...)

    Re: 12% chlorine prices around the country

    Thanks for all the input on this topic - I'll keep looking and maybe I'll find some reasonable for the season. If not - I'll keep using the 96 ouncers from the store.

    The cheapest I've found is $3.99/gal for 12.5% and $16.95 for the 5 gal carbouy with a $6 dep. Found at branch brook/namco.

    $16.99 for 5 gallon carboy of 12.5% at my local Namco in RI. I'm still trying to figure out if that's cheaper than BJ's wholesale. wally's or Aldi. I guess if I can find 6% bleach for less than $1.70gal I'm good right? My math has always been shoddy

    16.99/(5x128x.125) = .212 per oz hypochlorite
    1.70/(128x.06) = .221 per oz so the carboy is cheaper. You'd need to find 6% at under $1.63/gal to be cheaper.

    Where I am, a nearby Lucky grocery store has 2gal 10% for 6.99 (.273/oz hypo).
    The Pool Guys in Saratoga sells a 4-gal case of 12.5% for 16.60 (works out about the same) plus a $5 deposit. They currently have a 2-for-1 deal, which is .138/oz hypo!

    Just bought a 5 gal container for $18.99 outside Philadelphia. $7 deposit too. What's that about 3.80 a gallon? I might need to shop around a little bit.

    Re: 12% chlorine prices around the country

    $16.99+$6.00 refundable deposit for 5 gallon carboys of 12.5% at my local Branch Brook/Namco. So $3.40/gallon not including the deposit.

    Never thought about checking Job Lot (which is a lot closer to me, so maybe lugging the bottles around is worth it)

    I dont mind the Namco trips too much though, get away from the family for a while
