This is for anyone who has access to the 5 gallon jugs of liquid, not store bleach.
A few of the pool stores in the area carry the pallets full of the jugs. Prices have been steadily rising year after year. The closest store, and the one notoriously expensive, is now asking $19.50 for a jug. Another one about 8 miles away is a little cheaper - $16-17 or so.
I have a friend who owns a chemical supply distributorship that gives it to me at cost - maybe $8 a jug, but it is a 60 mile ride and I can only legally carry 10 gallons at a time without a special hazmat permit.
I checked online, doubting that such a heavy product could be gotten any better after shipping $$, and I was right.
If my local supply (the store 8 miles away) is selling 12% strength (my friend's is 12.5%), how does this compare to Walmart plain bleach, pricewise?
