The thought of summer invokes specific, tangible memories. The sticky sweetness of watermelon juice. The cool tang of a popsicle touching your tongue. The scent of barbecue in the breeze. The clear blue of the summer pool. Unfortunately, one of our most cherished summer traditions could be in jeopardy due to ongoing chlorine shortages. 

The Current Chlorine Shortage

It's no secret that the Coronavirus pandemic has affected nearly every aspect of our lives. Pandemic disruptions to the supply chains have coincided with weather-related disruptions at chemical plants and slowing rates of imported materials to create a genuine crisis around the availability of chlorine.

Chlorine prices have increased up to 35%, and steeper price increases seem likely. In addition, purchasing restrictions have been enacted at major retailers and pool stores to prevent hoarding, and pool owners are concerned about how this might affect their plans to reopen their pools in the summer of 2021.
