I bought my first liquid chlorine today! At Walmart as well. Date wise, when is too old to use/buy?Bought some of the 10% today. It was dated for mid December, but that is close enough in Winter time. Surprised they already started rolling it out.
Woody,If I just didn't have to go in a Walmart to get it!~
$2.86/gallon currently. I am excited that it is back!What price are they selling it for?
Price per oz is almost always better at Walmart. Some folks are lucky and have 12.5% available to them in quantity at their local pool $tore, that can be a better deal in some cases.
Plenty of pool stores, but there's no money to be made for them selling liquid bleach against grocery stores at least. Somehow I'm pretty sure they have a better profit margin selling pucks in a lot less retail space.
This is very true, and why buying inside a store is better than outside (i.e. in pool/garden section) as chlorine strength will drop very quickly as temperature rises. See table below. Can see a 15% solution will lose 1/2 its strength in 48 days @ 90 degrees versus 148 days @ 75 degrees. Of course you don't know how it was stored prior to their displaying - was it in an air-conditioned warehouse or not.At my Pool Store they claim their Chlorine is 12.5% but tell me to treat it as 10%. It is really hit-or-miss there. Once I could not get my pool adjusted right with it, so I had to reverse engineer using Pool Math and my final results to determine that the chlorine was only about 6% strength at that time. Out of all my trials with Pool Store chlorine, I have never guessed right at its strength. I am not sure if they keep their tank in the sun or what, but you never know what you are going to get.
It makes it very hard to adjust your FC if you are not sure how strong the chlorine is. I prefer to have consistency from Walmart than guessing with the Pool Store. (Note: Your experience may vary from mine...)
Bro,I really don't know how to measure the strengh of chlorine but would think the same things you state could be true at Wal-Mart. I will be sure to watch this more carefully. Thank you.

That's the in-store price at my local Walmart as Well. However, they will now price match to their online price which currently is 2.86... at least the two that I shop at do it.i noticed that the walmart in my area is selling it also, but it was 3.67. hopefully they will bring the price down then i will start stocking up. for about a month last summer they had it for 2.50.
