I would find a roof cleaning contractor in New Jersey who is far away from you, and ask them where they buy stuff from ?

Depends on the chemical. TSP is powder or crystals. 12.5% sodium hypochlorite is liquid.

Today I talked to someone at the SHC plant in Brunswick Ga. He gave me a list of some of his clients that order regularly so the SHC is fresh. I asked for the golden key to the plant but struck out. Anyway he told me some sources I had not thought of a cleaning supply company and a water well drilling and maint. company. I bought from one and talked to the other my price was $2.80 a gal at a local pool company, I bought it today at $1.60 and might be able to do better.

I bought it from a paper and cleaning supply company yesterday and I am still waiting on the price from the well maint. company. they service community wells. I really didn't understand why they use it but when I explained I would like to by in volume she said that they are constantly buying it by truckload.

The 10% or 12.5% does not last forever so don't buy a lot, only buy what you will use in a month or less because it degrades quickly.

Here it goes bad within a month or less so I only get what I need.

Thanks Chris we travel about 40 miles one way and put about 125 gallons at a time $1.60. I am trying to get local pool company $2.80to reduce the price or I will keep buying it out of town. I cant wait till i am using 500 gallons a month. Do very many guys use 500 or more gallons a month. The chemical rep said thats the minimum drop $1.16 a gallon.

Some of these guys will use that in a matter of a few days to a week, not a month. hahaha

The guys in Florida do more roofs than anyone anywhere else in the U.S. because the people there have been doing it, it is part of the H.O.A. bylaws, it reduces their utility bills, it helps keep the value of their houses up, etc..... We just need to get the rest of the country to learn about it or we have to educate them.
