I bought my first 2.5 gallon jug of chlorine from Pinch a Penny today and when I busted it out I noticed something was missing....the smell of bleach! It is completely odorless and dark yellow like urine.

Is this normal?

Yes, refillable. Lady told me it was filled this morning. Stored in a separate room with other chlorine. She said it gets shipped at 15% and that it should be about 11% now.

Update: the odorless liquid chlorine from Pinch a Penny has been keeping my FC levels on point, so it is working. I also spoke with an employee there and they assured me that there should be no odor to the bleach unless it touches a contaminate.

Bleach/chlorine definitely has a smell. It's not overly strong and is not that overwhelming "pool smell" people often associate with chlorine but there is a unique chlorine smell to luquid chlorine. Definitely not "oderless"!
