Customer Questions & Answers

how many % of chlorine ?

Asked by: Bintau
It does list 10% on the label however, check the date codes on the packages as the product does lose strength over time. Anything over, say, 6 weeks will have lost on average about 1% in strength.

How can we request our local Home Depot to stock this?

How can I find out what quantity comes on a pallet and request Home Depot to bring in a pallet every month? I think there are enough customers in Columbia, SC who would commit to buying this chlorine to keep it fresh. It needs to have a date code within a month of purchase so I'd need to round up enough customers to buy all on the pallet every month. If I can do that would Home Depot bring it in to Columbia, SC?

Customer Reviews

1 Gal. Pool-Care Chlorinating Liquid (2-Pack) is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Check the date code.... I need to clarify a thing or two. Yes, sodium hypochlorite has a half-life (shelf life). The higher the concentration, the shorter the half-life is. This 10% chlorine will lose half its concentration in 241 days at 80F. Normal bleach (Clorox) is typically 6-8.5% and will thus degrade more slowly. I called the company to verify how to read their date code. The first two digits are indeed the year (14=2014). The next three are the day of the year (365=Dec 31st). Thus, pick the freshest you can find. And, 10% is not a low concentration. It's a pretty decent one for a consumer product. Chlorine is a very potent chemical. That's why we use it as a sanitizer. The government won't let untrained people handle highly concentrated chlorine solutions for good reasons. I also compared the price of this product vs Clorox sold at warehouses and it's extremely competitive. May I recommend the TroubleFreePool website for more thorough discussion on pool chemistry? It's been invaluable to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from How is HD selling this product Unfortunately I wasn't aware of chlorine half life at the time of purchase. I have been managing my in-ground pool for the last two years with HD liquid chlorine as well as some other chlorine supplements. Last month my pool began having increased algea while using the same amount of chemicals. I ended up pouring more than 20 gallons of this chlorine in the last month without any success of clearing the water. I changed the filters, tested the water weekly, did all maintenance accordingly. Leslies tested and still showed low chlorine levels after 20 gallons of chlorine within a month! Won't be buying their chlorine any longer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really bad I can confirm that it is really bad. One gallon per day for a small pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective product if recently produced I took note of the June 29, 2014 comment by the reviewer from San Jose re: limited shelf life & the readily available date code on the box (2-digit year + 3-digit sequential day of production). On July 26 my Glendale, AZ store offered boxes dated 16194 (Jul 12) and 16118 (Apr 27) so I bought the 14-day-old product, not the 90 d containers. 1.5 gal of chlorine was recommended by Leslie's Pool Supply, which raised the CL level from zero to 5ppm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very weak I normally use 2 gal. per week in my pool, bought hdx brand and had to use 6 gal. in 4 days

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weak,weak,weak. I have owned a pool for 25 years and when I added two gallons of this new liquid chlorine Kem-Tek to my pool it only lasted one week compared to the two and a half weeks I was getting with the chlorine they were carrying before. Regardless of what it says on the box, this Kem-Tek is weaker and does not last as long. And yes I am doing the same maintenance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Looked around on the net and retail ,this price is hard to beat At $6.86 for two gallons ,no pool supply store or chem wherehouse can meet it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Anyone that has surpassed the cyanuric acid (stabilizer) maximum in their pool will need to use liquid chlorine for a period of time until the water normalizes. This is a good option instead of emptying your pool to get rid of too much stabilizer. Glad to have this liquid chlorine available when I need it, which is now.
