    Pool Chlorine Online?

    You should not buy any chlorine online. You should be using liquid chlorine which would be prohibitively high cost to ship.

    Liquid chlorine weighs 8 lbs a gallon so shipping it in anything less than pallet quantities is not going to happen. Since you are in California if you can find a HASA dealer with returnable liquid chlorine totes that might be your best price.

    I use bleach from Costco or Chlorine from Home Depot.

    If buying from HD, check the date of manufacture on the box, get fresh chlorine only because they store it outside which degrades it.

    Start here:

    You'll pay a deposit on the crate and jugs, but after that it's usually cheapest and the stuff is fresh

    Also watch the sales. OSH usually has a big sale on pool chlorine. Check the date codes before you buy. It'll be stamped on the case somewhere. Chlorine Date Code Decoder/Easy Way to Measure Strength.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    OSH just had a sale on KemTek 10% pool chlorine last week. Two gallons for $4.99! I had to dig through two hole pallet stacks to find fresh product though. They had some with a date code of Jan 3rd.

    Fortunately I found some with April 2nd, so not too old.
