I just suggest calling Fara and telling him I sent you and he will take care of you.
Esp. if you handle your own PU&D.

Thay may also have a station in S.A. Chris.

Brian, for a 55er pick up they quoted me $110.00. My suggestion if you buy from theses guy's is to make sure they have it ready when you get there. I went there last week to get a very small amount, and had to wait 1 and 1/2 hours for them to pour it, label it, box it etc. And this after calling them in the morning and setting an appointment for 1pm.

Called today, couldn't lower my prices with delivery. Said if I picked them up he could beat them.

That's too bad he couldn't give you a better rate for delivery Scott.
It might be because of the service area and the cartage company they use.
I'm not dissatisfied with my current supplier, however I have no problems with a better delivery rate. Them being up North is a real plus for me. It is cheaper in my experiences that the rate is much much cheaper when you provide your own PU&D.
The accessorial charges for a resi delivery with liftgate and sometime a two-man, can be staggering.
Still, I would rather have it delivered anyday.

Yes. They tell me it starts out at 12.5% and then goes to 10% after 6 days. Holds at 10%.

Keep it in a cool place with the right uv barrier ( blue or black tank) on the drum and that 12% will last ALOT longer than a week before it starts breaking down.

I don't believe it will sustain itself at 10% as a rule.
Once it starts going, it doesn't stop.

Example. I have used really really old SH and I know that it was much much weaker than 10% with no effects whatso ever.

However I generally order a 55 a month. Dec.-Jan. I may go through 1 55 since it is slower.

I go through 4-6 a week so delivery is a must. I love univar so I was really just looking for better prices. It's VERY nice to know they're up there. Just 2 days ago I had to drive down to univar from Katy, pick up a barrel and drive to Montgomery because my guys were 10 gallons short!! Would have been nice to be able to pick a barrel up on the way.
