    Prices for Chlorine by City

    As a followup to my earlier post I was thinking it might be useful to have a list by city of the best way people have found to by Chlorine. If you agree please post just your city name followed by a list of container types and/or sizes (case, 2.5 gallons, 5 gallons, 15 gallons, etc) and price as this will make it easy for other to search the thread.

    Unless otherwise noted assume a concentration of 12.5%.

    I'll start.
    33'x15' x 52" Aqualeader
    Gallons ? - (I use appx 13,500 to calculate "stuff")
    33 x 15 x 4.3 x 5.9 = 12,558. or . . The Pool Calculator = 14,400
    Hayward S-166T 100Lb Sand Filter - Hayward Power-Flo LX 1HP Pump
    Intex S.W.G.

    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!
