    Stabilizer cost

    Wow...it's very expensive. Went to pool store and am paying 17.00 for 4.5 lbs. The next size (not sure how how many lbs )is over 100.00. My pool store is typically the cheapist when it comes to salt and MA so I would guess the same about stabilizer. Do you all find it expensive?

    I got mine online HERE. Eight pounds for $29 with free fedex shipping. It's definitely cheaper per pound in bulk.

    I just bought some at Lowes. It was $10 for 3 lbs. Hopefully it's enough for my small pool.

    Pinch-a-Penny charges $13.99 for a 4 lb. bucket.

    But they charge $9.99 for a 40 lb. bag of salt! So I buy my salt elsewhere.

    Andiejj,
    That's what I paid. Considering that you don't need much of it over time, and taking into account what it does for the pool, I consider it a bargain.
