    Storage for chemicals

    Hello, we have an attached garage and a patio without a cover. Is it ok for me to store chemicals in a deck box outside on my patio? Just thinking it'll be a pain to drag jugs of chemicals through the house if we store in the garage. I'm especially wondering about the summer months. In Houston, it averages 95+.

    Thanks!!

    Yes, you can store some out in a box but DO NOT STORE MURIATIC ACID ANYWHERE NEAR LIQUID CHLORINE!! (sorry for shouting, but this is a major hazard)

    Do you have any shady areas in the yard you could put a box? Chlorine kept in the heat will lose strength pretty quickly so you really don't want to stock up too much.

    Ok, good to know! Maybe I'll keep chlorine in the utility room and other chemicals in the deck box then.
