    how to poor from large carboy of chlorine

    Okay, I decided to try a large 5 gallen liquid chlorine from the local pool chain. How in the world do you get the chlorine out of this thing? Any suggestions? There is a large round cover on the top with an opening about 3 inches. If I tip it to poor, it will spill everywhere!

    I should have stuck with the bottles of clorox!

    well you could get a pump like they have to transfer fuel out of fuel tanks. or just pick it up and pour it into whatever you were planning on storing it in (i.e. 5 gallon bucket so you can scoop out the amount you need with a measuring cup). I know it's heavy :\

    You can use a siphon pump like they use to transfer Kerosine into a kerosine heater to transfer the CL into a 1 gal jug.
