Publix was $2.39 yesterday for Publix brand regular, no sale mentioned, looked like a regular price tag. It's normally $2.85-ish though. I took all they had on the shelf which was 8.

Anyone know anything about SE Grocers Essentials Bleach? Local Bilo has it for $1 gallon for the next week. Any idea what % it is?

I finally received a response from Bi-Lo customer support. The SE Grocers Essentials Bleach contains 1.5% Sodium Hypochlorite. I was thinking maybe 6% would never have thought 1.5%!!

My wife would like me to use that, probably wouldn't stain my shorts and shirts!

Same at our Wal-marts. All pool supplies have been replaced with college student supplies. The Great Value 8.25% was $2.96/121oz. There is a $1/64oz "Top Choice" but it doesn't have a concentration and I couldn't find anything about it online. I bought a couple jugs. I'm going to try them in the pool and see what effect they have. If it is close to 8.25%, it will be great. That'll be my daily add, almost exactly.
Are you sure it wasn't Top Job? If so, it is 6-7%.

Yes, you are right... 'Top Job'. Almost everything else there is 'somebody's choice'.
So 6-7%? The pool essentials 10% was $2.50 for 128oz, therefore, $.195 per ounce percent. Assuming 6% for 96 oz at $1, that is $.173 per ounce percent. And 7% would be $.149 per ounce percent.
Is my math wrong or is that really good?

In W PA the local Giant Eagle has ValueTime bleach for $1.76 a gallon. The issue is this stuff flies off the shelf, you have to visit repeatedly and even then there are usually only one or two bottles available.

This week their generic bleach is $3 a gallon.

In the Chicago area I buy 4 pack 12.5% cases for $10 and also the muriatic acid for $5 per gallon at The Great Escape. You can sometimes get it at Menards for $2 a gallon but need to go in a lug a bunch around. At The Great Escape I back up to the dock and they load the cases and the chlorine is always fresh.

That matches my math. I remember Top Job not being a good deal before, but I can't figure out why. Make sure the dates are fresh. Couldn't hurt to buy one and see if when you add it to your pool you actually get the expected amount of chlorine.

According to Top Job msds percent is listed at 1-5%.

I wrote HASA through their web contact form because a search showed they have a location in Bryan, TX. It turns out it is a manufacturing location. No retail sales. So they referred me to a couple of pool stores. $4.50/gal in recyclable containers for 12.5% and $6/gal in disposable jugs for 10% at the other store. Does anyone buy from these guys? What a racket. Maybe I can make a deal with the HASA plant and bring a barrel over.

Think I'd rather buy 8% with a date code. Never know about how long that 10 or 12% stuff has been sitting out in the Texas heat, not worth it at that price!

Meijer (Michigan, Ohio, Indiana) has/had 10% @ 9.99 per case (4/Gallons), at my local store its sitting inside and has a date stamp of 8/17.

Grabbed 2 cases to finish out the season (also fighting algae bloom right now - almost cleared up though!).

Bought some more 12.5% at the local Fleet Farm last week. Check the date on the top box, 08/03/2017 expiration (08/03/2016 production date). Grabbed two other 4 packs. When I took the other two out at home they had 03/12/2017 expiration. :mad: :grrrr::thumbdown::brickwall: Opening all the boxes from now on.

Missed that sale yesterday....ended up buying from HEB instead. On the plus side, I find my local HEB usually has a ton of fresh stock. Bought 6 bottles at $2.94 each and had a huge choice with 222 date codes.

Checked online and it looks like Target have actually put the price up on their 8.25%. $3.39 now for 121oz.
