Not a stupid question!

I bought mine at the local spa dealer. It can probably only be shipped via UPS ground.

we're on community water tank--22,000 gallons that supplies about 30 users.  Also have a 1,500 gallon holding tank on our property.  Our holding tank works on gravity, so we are set.

That's 733 gallons per person. Do your neighbors have a good concept of water conservation? Is the tank always full?

hoosiermom,
I had to go to a pool store, the spa people just laughed at me " we don't sell that because it doesn't go in spas. If it is a spa & pool supply, they may have it. I bought two 1 lb packages. I hope it's the right stuff as it says 65% calcium hypochlorite and 35% other. It doesnt say algeacides tho.

Ok so if the calcium hypo = 65%  or higher and other ingred.=35% or greater ( obviously = 100%) and it does not say anything else about algecides that is what we need to make up the liquid mix to treat h2o with ?  I have looked at the label and wasnt sure... What do you think the "other ingred" are-maybe stabilizers or something?  Thanks all sorry I wanted  this spelled out to me.Smile

The 35% is inert.
 
You first make a stock clorine solution. Then you use the SCS to disinfect your drinking water.
 

"Granular Calcium Hypochlorite. Add and dissolve one heaping teaspoon of high-test granular calcium hypochlorite (approximately 1/4 ounce) for each two gallons of water. The mixture will produce a stock chlorine solution of approximately 500 mg/L, since the calcium hypochlorite has an available chlorine equal to ~70 percent of its weight.

 
To disinfect water, add the stock chlorine solution in the ratio of one part of chlorine solution to each 100 parts of water to be treated. This is roughly equal to adding 1 pint (16 oz.) of stock chlorine to each 12.5 gallons of water to be disinfected."

So, if my math isn't too bad, about 1 1/4 gal of scs to 55 gallons water to make potable?

1 scs to 100 water
 
55 gal water / 100 = .55 gal scs
 
So a heaping tablespoon of calcium hypoclorite will make two gallons of scs which will treat almost 400 gallons of water! Clap That's why I bought only 10 pounds of CH. Wink
