Thank you!  I will be going in two weeks again!  I will not have as much room, but I can bring more stuff and fix most things.  What else does Lee like?  I gave him batteries and money!

Heading to the springs tomorrow morning.  I already have loaded 20 gallons of bleach, 4 brushes, 6 spray bottles, TP, batteries for Lee, and it think that is it.  Anything else that is needed?

There were only a couple gallons when we dropped ours off, don't think he made it there yet. Maybe this weekend?

Thx, Thunder58. Did you notice how much bleach was at the Palm Springs? A hotspringer who posts as The Drifter pledged 20 gals. I am wondering if he was able to make it.

Spray bottles to mist bleach  - reduces bleach consumption tenfold - leave them by the Crystal pool.
These will work:

Clorox Bleach Foamers - or other bleach based cleaners  - continuous need.


Biodegradable dishwashing soap


Paper Towels + gloves + elbow grease are needed for cleaning the restrooms but PLEASE DO NOT DISPOSE USED PAPER TOWELS  into the restroom tanks. Collect into your trash bag and take them home. Do not leave unused paper towels in the restrooms - hide them in the storage, donate to camp host or take back home. People use paper towels to wipe hands and throw them into the tanks. Paper towels do not break easily and often clog pump truck hoses.


Palms Springs:

Bleach - ALL GONE! Please bring as much as possible.

Agreed. I have a pool and use the Chlorine tablets. When it gets over 100 if the bucket is exposed to the sun the tablets actually turn yellow and start to emit a gas. Liquid would be better.

There is a post on this forum I cannot find where I argued against. I think the post got deleted.

So remembering my points...this is just my opinion against:

Dry chlorine products should be kept dry. If the products become damp, solid chlorine products may produce chlorine gas when not stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area and not
contaminated by other materials, such as acids, bases, or easily oxidizable materials. They can become unstable and dangerous if mishandled, improperly stored or contaminated.
They can undergo a decomposition reaction, which could produce intense heat, fire or explosion.So, a proper safe storage must be created to avoid major issues.

Another point against is one needs to know how to properly mix dry chlorine with water to create a relatively safe concentration.
For somebody like me who runs a meth lab it's not a big deal. But most people would not know the proper ratio leading to creating a possibly lethal solution.

Then somebody will have a bright idea to add dry chlorine to liquid chlorine. Perhaps the person might want to mix dry chlorine in an old bleach container that has few drops left. 
Mixing liquid chlorine with dry chlorine – that has the potential to cause an explosion.

So, the aforementioned points and the need for dedicated  containers, beakers, funnels, mixing and measuring flasks and other lab supplies make dry chlorine idea too complicated.
