Hi guys,

My Calcium Hardness has been dropping over the past few months and I am assuming it is because of all the rain we have had here in Houston.
For the past 18 months it has been pretty static at 350 but is now down to 190.
So my question is, where is the best place to buy Calcium Chloride. I could pick it up at Leslies but it seems like it is pretty expensive $40 for 15lb.

Look at Puri-Tech on Amazon. I have used their stabilizer and it seems to be a good product.

You should be able to get the Puri-Tech 25 lb bag for around $40.00 with free delivery from Amazon.

I'm lucky up here in New England! I get a 50lb bucket of pure calcium chloride at bjs wholesale club for $20.00 during the winter months when I'm going to drain and paint my pool the following summer. I've also purchased it almost as cheap at contractor supply stores during the summer. Dow peladow. Lowes has it in stock right now a mile from me same price as the BJS brand. Calcium chloride is also used to keep dust down in construction zones so it is available in the summer months.

Puri-tech is twice the price compared to when I bought it a few months ago. Perhaps all the rain in Houston has driven up prices. Any other good places to buy it?
