I just priced bleach in Nashua, NH. The local Market Basket supermarket had their own brand of 5.25% at $1.50 / gal. Costco warehouse store had 546 oz (box with 3 jugs) of 6% Chlorox Regular Bleach for $6.59. Naamco Pool Store, sells 5 gal plastic kegs of 12.5% for $13.99. Using a spreadsheet, I figured out the equivalent 5.25% cost per gal of the last two as $1.35 and $1.18.newnick said:A local grocery store has the 5.25% for 1.49 a gal. The 11% I bought today was 3.50 at Lowes. If buying bleach I'd steer clear of clorox, just get the store brand, should be less expensive.

That's funny. :lol: I haven't tried to find liquid chlorine, except for bleach, here in AZ yet.KurtV said:Home Depot and Lowes sometimes carry the 11% stuff here in Louisiana (where you also can't buy liquid chlorine for pool chlorination). It's labeled for RV use; I assume that's why they can sell it.
Ouch! I've found that Target has their store brand for $2.29 for 182 ounces.stevenspool said:I didn't have any luck finding the liquid shock at Home Depot.
I did find Clorox 6% bleach at the ungodly price of $3.97 for about a gallon and a half.
The best i've come up with is Walmart no-name brand 6% bleach for $2.28 for about a gallon and a third...and I'll have to smuggle that into the pool
