    Bulk Chemicals in Los Angeles??

    I'm hoping to do some Cirkut camera work this summer and I'd like to buy some bulk Hypo in 50 or 100 pound sack. Is there a place in So. Ca. to do that. I don't need regeant grade. The stuff to de-chlorinate the pond would be fine. Thanks for any help. Google searches aren't what they used to be unless hypo now costs more than rock cocaine.

    holy crap. i did a google search just for fun....man! i am going into the hypo business. i saw a couple of pounds for like $1000!

    i am lucky to live very close to artcraft chems. i stop in and see him to get my stuff just to save the shipping.....i picked up a fifty pounder the other day......

    hope you find something. try artcraft if you must. the shipping on 40 pounds was like $35. if you buy 50 he may give you a deal.....

    Jim: You might try Westco Chemicals, 12551 Saticoy Street South, North Hollywood, CA 91605. (818) 255-3655.

    I did a web search for chemical suppliers after my hole in the wall place, closer to the office, folded and they seemed like a source. They list hypo as something they sell. I have no idea how they are on pricing and I haven't used them since I haven't run out of my supply from the old place yet. Good luck. I'd be interested to know what they charge though if you pursue it.

    There are enough swimming pools there. Call a pool supply place. They should have it in 50#.

    I walked into the pool supply place in town today. They had 1 lb bottles of hypo for $20. Wow. Or you could order 50 lbs for $68. It's all about bulk and packaging.
