Pool Chlorine Tablets and Shock

Jon26 74 April 22, 2012 at 05:45 PM
It's pool season here in Phoenix and it's already in the 100's...yikes. Anyway, hoping anyone out there has some insight into any cheap pool tablets and or shock packets. I run through this stuff like it's going out of style in the summer and was hoping to stock up and prepare.

Best I've seen so far is about $2.42/lb for 3" Chlorine tablets...but that's not really that great of a deal. Help?

If you are a Costco member, Costco.com has the 50 lb bucket of 3" tablets for $99.99 ($2.00/lb) with free shipping.

In store, they have the 40 lb bucket for $84.99 ($2.13/lb).

Any insight into whether the KemTec products are on the same level as other products? They sell KemTec in the grocery store and I'm afraid that they might have more "fillers", thus lowering the price and being less effective...

I looked online, but ended up buying them in store as I needed them more quicky. The in-store brand is not Kem-Tek but I can't recall the brand at the moment (Pool Time perhaps).

Even with the heat this past week, the tab lasted a full week and did not 'donut' or disintegrate.

The Costco in-store pool tabs are Aqua Chem 3" Chlorinating Tabs PLUS.

I was researching the same thing and Lowe's and Home Depot seem to have the best pricing per pound, about $1.86.

Lowe's - Kem - Tek - http://www.lowes.com/SearchCatalo...051&rpp=24
