Chlorine Tablet Shortage! Don't let this spoil your summertime fun in the swimming pool.

The worst chlorine shortage the country has ever seen is set to rock this summer’s pool season. The chlorine shortage is widespread and it will likely worsen. Kirby's Pools is offering an alternative that will leave your pool unaffected by this shortage!

A combination of factors has led to the scarcity of chlorine tablets, including an unprecedented surge in demand last year and a chemical plant fire, which destroyed some manufacturing capacity.

Chlorine tablets are used to maintain chlorine levels in pools in addition to liquid chlorine added almost weekly. Without these tablets, liquid chlorine will need to be added more frequently in order to keep the pools adequately sanitized. For those who are more irritated by the strong chlorine smell and feel, this may not be the best alternative, or the cheapest in the long run.
