for anyone storing pool shock

Post by Grouchyprepper » Thu Oct 18, 2018 7:24 pm

My experience with storing pool shock....not good.
Stored pool shock (about a pound) 5 years ago in its original bag.
1 years latter gas build up caused the bag to leak.
Vacuum sealed the bag and placed it on a metal table beside gloves and other metal objects.
Gases leaked out of the bag again and eat the gloves rusted the metal table and any metal near it.
Vacuum sealed the bag again and placed it in a small plastic cooler by itself.
Shudder to think if I would have stored it in a bin with other preps (radio,flashlight,batteries,cloths extra)
This stuff eats everything.

About 3 months back I bought a couple pails of the stuff from the re-store. They are sitting in a shipping container. I will check on them

Grouchyprepper was right the stuff seems to leak out of everything, now stored by itself under a plastic barrel.
