I'm considering changing from using 3% H2O2 from the grocery store to 27% from the pool supply store, called "baqua spa oxidizer." I'm not sure it's the best value price-wise, as I've encountered the 3% type routinely at Wal-Mart for as low as 88 cents a quart in my area.


My guess is that the hydrogen peroxide from the pool supply store is created to be more stable in solution, so if that's the case, I'm willing to pay a higher price for better control of the oxidizer levels.


If anyone has some insight on the pros and cons of using a higher concentration vs lower concentration it would assist my decision on whether to switch to a higher concentration.



Comment
You'd need 10 quarts of 3% to make one quart of 30%. 4 quarts to make one gallon - that means the gallon of 30% is cheaper if it's less than $35. You should be able to beat that.



For me, it wouldn't matter too much. Busy float center with multiple tanks.... buying those little bottles and using that much from them would drive me cahrazy.

How much you'll get out of it will depend mostly on how high you keep the ppm and how much use it gets.


For commercial tanks your going to want to make sure your ppm levels are between 30-50 ppm (FTA Recommendation).


The degredation starts after about 6 monthsin the bottom of the fridge for me. Basically, a cup the first month would equal about a cup and half after 6 months, rough estimate. Better off giving your supplier a ring about degradation and storage,helpful people at the site recommended.


I'd imagine 2 gallons would be areasonable place to start.

Thanks to both of you. Another question. At the site Dave listed, the more you buy the more you save. Two gallons cost $52.43 each, four gallons cost $37.38 each, and six gallons cost $28.79 each.


How long can this be frozen for? I have a freezer at home with room for a larger purchase. Can this stuff be frozen and thawed multiple times safely?


Right now I have one float tank and plan on getting a second unit in about 15 months or so. How much do you purchase at a time?

Comment
In the freezer I think the storage is much much longer. Pure Health Discounts is where I get mine, and in their literature, which I haven't read in a very long time, they recommend buying in bulk and putting it in the freezer. Works great for me.
