Our local Leslies I believe is running a Buy 2 Get 1 free deal. They charge about $5 for 2.5 gallons of 10% strength bleach. It comes out to about 16 cents / oz using that Excel sheet found in the forums somewhere.

I just paid $5.99 for two 1-1/2 gallons (total=3 gal) of Chlorox . They come as a set from our local BJs or Costco (Ellicott City/Balto MD). This was better than our grocery store prices, where it was $2.99 for 1 gallon of Chlorox or $2.49 for generic label.

My local FLPS sells 2.5 gal carboys of Buckman Labs 12.5% LC for $9. That beats the local CostCo Clorox 3x1.82.oz for $9.99 and the Walmart GV 182.oz for $2.89. I already have three carboys. This place refunds cash for the carboy deposit but I just keep them over the winter.

That's last years price at my Meijer! I'm paying $13 now. Still a slight bit better than 3 clorox for $8.50 @ Sam's, plus less liquid.

Edit - and on meijer.com it's listed at $12.49

Just converting over to the bbb so I've been shopping for bleach.

Metro Atlanta
Costco 3-182 oz bottles of Clorox $9.49
Wal-Mart 182 oz bottles, $2.98
Aldi's 96 oz bottles, $1.15
Janitorial Supply 6-one gallon bottles to a case, $8.98

Grocery Store had 60 oz, 96 oz 128 oz and 182 oz bottles of Clorox and off brands way more expensive
Leslie's said that they don't carry liquid chlorine and thought it would be hard to find in GA.
I haven't had any luck at Home Depot or Lowe's, is there anyone in the area that has found 10-12.5% LC?

Leslie's on-line wants $299 for 100lbs of 73% Cal-Hypo, which makes it more expensive than bleach. In the store they are selling it for $189 that makes it a little less expensive than bleach ( .16/oz vs .20/oz at Aldi's) but a lot more hassle.

What is FLP's? That sounds like a great price.

FLPS - Friendly Local Pool Store. In this case, a local NJ outfit with two or three stores called Pelican Pools.

LC and September 2 for 1 pool floats are the only thing I buy there.

Man pool stores here sell 10% gallons for $4.99. Lucky you! I did just find a place Farm and Ranch Store called Atwoods on the complete other side of town that sells gallons of liquid chlorine for $2.99. I don't know whether its 10% or 12% but I am gonna have to check it out.

Same here, the great escape and American sales both run that special. 4 gal of 12.5% for 9.99 seems like a good deal
Otherwise aldi has the 6% cheap also
