    Re: 12.5% SH not an option

    I am paying $1.44/gallon. I have 2 pool supply stores within 1/2 mile from my house. I let them store it and I buy it as needed. The stuff we get here is 10.5% and its always fresh. I guess were lucky in florida because we can always find it cheap. :thumbsup:

    I pay 2.80 a gal for 12.5% if I only buy a small amount, If I have them fill my 50 gal. tank I get it alot cheaper. Either way the customer is paying for it anyway.

    Florida still has a lot of people who use SH for pool chlorination, even commercial. As a result, it's readily available and cheap. Just a little way north in Atlanta, resi pool chlorine is dry and not even calcium hypo any more. Most large commercial installations use gaseous infusion systems.

    I use it for my pool as well. The most I ever have laying around my house is 10 gallons.

    The cost of bleach is a lot like the cost of gas...

    Theres no point in looking because youve got to have it.

    I use straight bleach and soap.No mixing.The kicker is how is your rig setup?Mine is setup to run straight bleach with the amount of hose I use and the injectors I have.

    The answer I think is 1% bleach to the surface.You do what you have to do to get that and stop worrying about whats in the tank.Unless you are gonna get a setup just like the guy answering the question.Which may be a $1000.00 rig or a $10,000.00 rig.
