Is there an expiration on this stuff? I want to buy the largerst (4L Bottle) for the best value, but will last me many years. Will it last forever?

Does anyone(s) want to split a big 4L bottle?

Not sure. Ken's has it for $68, but shipping is about $14 to make it about $82. :( There are other sizes too. Not sure where the best place would be considering shipping.

I've been meaning to switch to cloram-x.

I've used Prime for many years but keep hearing Cloram-x mentioned. Can anyone who has used both offer a comparison?

No offense to anyone but I think juice is trying to get a question answered.

Never heard of an expiration. I go through to much to even know - LOL! I don't it does - MIGHT loose some effectiveness overtime. Just remember to shake the bottle well everytime you use it...

We are giving constructive opinions on the same subject no?:confused:

In my informed opinion, it will last along time, probably years, but I would not count on it lasting forever.

I have used 3+ year old bottles that were stored indoors with no trouble so that should give you a ballpark.

Does Seachem's website have this information? I would like to know too.

I don't think Prime has an expiration date. I emailed SeaChem and will let you know what their response is.

Meantime, does anyone have a bottle of it handy to check for a date???

I've been buying the half gallons of pond prime. The ones I have don't have a date either.

Here's Seachem's response:


Prime does not have a shelf life, and therefore it
has no expiration date. Let us know if you have any
further questions!

i know prime gets rid of the metals, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.. it also provide slime coat.

What all does cloram-x do??
