I was in Target this weekend, browsed through their pool aisle. Picked up a sweet US Diver facemask/snorkel combo. Noticed they sold "liquid shock" or something like that. $4.99 a gallon for 5.25% sodium hypochlorite.

And their stock was running low... :(

Sometimes you can get really good deals at places like that because nobody knows what the heck the stuff is, so it ends up at 50-75% off (like the DE I bought at KMart for $8.75 25# bag)

"Hey, thats not a filter cartidge or a chlorine tablet, and it sure doesn't have that good copper in it to fight algae.... I don't need it!" lol

I have 3 Walmarts within an hours drive of each other. The Ultra Bleach 174oz bottles are $2.25 at two stores. The third store has it for $1.25. Heck, on the next shelf down, they have the 3 Qt bottle for $1.19, which is the same price as the other two stores for that size.

So, I've purchased another 12 big bottles today, 24 over the past 3 weeks. Hopefully, the magic won't end this pool season.
