    Y'all been holding out on me... the 35 is half price to the Bo. Deer whitens good in half the time in 35%. Only problem I see is the 35% foams up twice as much on the antlers and having to load a container of 15 gallons in and out of truck

    That stuff still scares me. Do they ship that in plastic barrels?

    NAAAAA........whitens same as 3%. LMAO

    and 35% last F-O-R-E-V-E-R.

    Truthfully, the better the skull is degreased the less it foams.

    I gotta ask this again. Where is the best place to buy this. I have been trying to find a local supplier for months with no luck and don't want to spend $75 on 4 gallons of BO anymore.

    Try your yellow pages under Chemical Suppliers. Look on the internet at UNIVAR to see if there is a supplier near you.

    If .....you don't have a supplier close and have to ship.......bend over and brace yourself for impact (freight charges)

    Just an FYI...Depending on where you're buying your B.O. from...you can get it for as cheap as $52/case of four. You have to ask for the case price. This is the price I pay at Leslie's Pool Supply...

    When I used BO they would discount a case of 2. It was 13.95 gallon retail.

    I had never heard of UNIVAR before. Googled it and they have a Sacramento location. Guess I'm making the switch to 35%. Thanks for this thread!

    here is there contact info.. dmcallister@birkocorp.com his name is dwight mcallister . shipping to commerial address is $78.96 and residential was $134.59 . this was for a 15 gallon container of 35% . the cost of the 35% was $5.67 a gallon and was cheaper if bought more than 15 gallons..... word to the wise thought..... a 15 gallon container is all one strong dude can handle -loading and unloading in shop!!! i shipped to my friends paint store in town to save the shipping cost.

    LOL....I handle a 55 gallon by myself. I have unloaded off my truck onto the rock wall then on to my flatbed trailer then in the shop. My trailer is only about a foot off the ground. My new shop out back was easiest....truck to the front porch then in the door. No picking it up.......500lbs. for 55 gallon.

    However, I have to go thru a local company that buys from them on a regular basis to get that free delivery and price.

    I called UNIVAR and they are making me fill out a credit form and won't sell to consumers. Their picked up price is essentially the same as Birkocorp's shipped price for 15 gallons.
