    I was given a 5 gallon bucket of peroxide when I started doing skulls. Its some industrial stuff with no label on the white bucket, so I cannot identify the % that it is. Antway, I have been 'milking' that bucket for 3 years and its time to replace it. Where can i buy another 5 gallon bucket of good strong peroxide? and what % volume should I use?? Thanks in advance.

    I would guess that you got your hands on a bucket of 35% stuff. Awesome as well as dangerous. Not sure where you can score the 35%, some get it in barrels. Next lowest strength is 27% which you can get at any supply place for pools.

    I buy 30% from the local hydroponics shop, they use it for sterilization of grow systems in the event of disease or between grows for cleanliness.

    I buy my 30% and 40% peroxide at Sally beauty's, it comes in quarts or gallons.
     
  5. The stuff from sally's is 40 volume. Not 40 percent, it's more like 10-15 percent.

    Yep. The 40 Vol is actually 12%. Not sure what the lesser Vols are bit I'd bet Google might answer it.

    Thanks folks for the replys. I'm going to talk to a pool supply store and see what they can do. The percentages and volumes are confusing, I think I'm going to sit down one day in mid summer, and spen the entire day learning about peroxide!
     
  8. Aquasilk is one from a pool store it is 35 or 37% can't remember then there is another in a blue bottle can't remember its name though but it was a little stronger both cost about $20 a gallon

    Find a dairy supply store. I have been able to buy 15 gallon of 35% for $105. Some do drop shipments, so you ships right to your house.

    Go to this sight and see if you can find a place near you that carries it.

  10. You guys ARENT buying 35%. That's 35% VOLUME which is only about 12%. 35% Peroxide would have to be registered with the government. That's why most supply places sell 34%. Any good chemical supply company sells 27 or 34%.
    And don't store it in a clear container, it will turn to water.
