No Chlorine Shortage at Poolsure
Updated: April 30th, 2021
We have come across several articles recently that mention an impending chlorine shortage during this upcoming summer season. We’d like to address any concerns that Poolsure’s customers may have regarding pool chlorine supply this summer.
Pool chlorine comes in a few different forms. Due to a chemical plant fire last year, there is currently a nationwide supply shortage of trichlor — a tablet form of chlorine primarily used in residential applications. This trichlor shortage is expected to extend for at least many more months, perhaps even into 2022.
However, Poolsure’s customers will not be impacted by the trichlor shortage. Poolsure’s primary disinfectant is bleach (i.e. sodium hypochlorite). Our supply of bleach and other pool chemicals is supported by a strong supplier network, stored in Poolsure-owned chemical storage facilities, and distributed by Poolsure’s exclusive tanker fleet. As such, we expect no interruptions or delays to our usual service in the coming months.
Poolsure customers will enjoy consistent and timely bleach deliveries this summer, just like any other summer!
