    Re: .95- 96oz Walmart Ultra Bleach

    I know I'll be out seeing if my local store has it for that price

    I just ran out of bleach and don't want to use the cal-hypo shock bags.
    So I'll buy some bleach anyway even if it does cost a little more.

    Thanks for the heads up

    Where were you getting cal-hypo for less than bleach?

    This is an interesting thread showing cost comparisons....

    Wally world...

    5-1 lb. bags cost $11.88 @ my local store.
    Still, I'd rather just use bleach rather instead of adding all that calcium into my pool.
    And bleach is still cheaper, cal-hypo is for when I really can't get the store for bleach


    Edit...

    I usually keep some cal-hypo on hand in case I run out of bleach, I've read the older threads about how some here buy a whole shopping cart of bleach.

    I'm not ready for the strange looks I'll get from doing that

    If my wally world has bleach for .95 I'm filling the a layer in my cart full of bleach though.
    If I don't use it all this season it'll get used for laundry either way.

    Re: .95- 96oz Walmart Ultra Bleach

    That's funny I came across this thread. This past weekend, I went in to buy the larger 174 oz or something bleach and out of the corner of my eye, I see a little sale sticker sticking out from the shelf below the larger bleach bottles. Lo and behold, $.95 for the 96oz. 15 mins later, I finally deduced that $2.50 for 174oz is a worse deal than $.95 for 96oz. I was ecstatic and decided to load up the cart with 10 bottles. Add that, plus a container of CYA and I was out the door at $20.

    Now, I have 10 bottles of bleach sitting on my garage floor. Good thing they're the smaller ones!
