I wanted to buy some 12% Sodium hypochlorite. Looked up a local chemistry supplier. Called them. The call was answered by secretary. I told her I needed some chemicals for my cleaning business and she took the name down and the list of chemicals. Then when I mentioned Hypochlorite she said she will have one of the salesmen call me back. That never happened.
So I called another supplier. The woman there asked what if I was going to use it for cleaning and I said yes. She said what type of cleaning. I told her a pressure washing of houses. She said “sorry, we have a deal with manufacturer to only sell to industrial businesses. If I was cleaning industrial they would sell.”
So I called yet a third supplier. Pretty much the same story, except he said that they can only sell totes and to buy it I will need to have an EPA registration and hazardous placards on my truck. WHAT!?!?
I am wondering is it only related to this area (Jackson, MS) or is it a normal practice?
Is there anything I need to tell them or not to tell them to get my hands on some 12% SH?
By the way, I am shopping as a business entity, not a homeowner or anything like that.
Thanks for advice.
