Can’t Find Chlorine Tabs for Your Pool?

The Shortage Explained

The chlorine shortage we are experiencing right now is due to the devastating hurricane in Louisiana last summer. The BioLab chemical plant in Lake Charles sustained significant damage and is being rebuilt, with a target date of Spring 2022. This plant produces a bulk of the key ingredients used in chlorinated pool and spa products across North America which is why everyone is experiencing a shortage in chlorine tabs.

Chlorine Tab Alternatives

Unfortunately, we are temporarily out of chlorine tabs but the good news is that there are perfectly effective alternatives! Granule chlorine and chlorinating liquid are available at this time. Another option is to convert to a salt pool. We understand that tabs are by far the easiest option but we will help you adjust your routine to keep chlorine levels where they need to be in the interim.

Keep Swimming All Summer Long

We don’t want to lose sight of the fact that sanitizer is the most important step of the 3 Step Pool & Spa Care System. Its main goal is to kill bacteria before it grows and reproduces, avoiding poor water quality and potential health problems. We are qualified to assist during this time of need and will help you identify how to make your replacement sanitizer last longer while still working hard for your safety.

As always, bring in your water sample for a free analysis! We’ll check for bacteria and algae overgrowth and advise accordingly.
