Tri-Chlor Shortage and What It Means For You
AS NEWS OF THE TRI-CHLOR SHORTAGE SPREADS, WE WANTED TO REACH OUT TO YOU, OUR FAITHFUL CUSTOMERS, AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS AND HOW IT MAY IMPACT YOU.
OP LIQUID SHOCK-IT IS NOT IMPACTED BY THE SHORTAGE
What is Tri-Chlor and what does the National Tri-Chlor shortage mean for me?
Tri-Chlor is the active ingredient in standard chlorine tablets. If you are one of our clients, you may be familiar with the Poolife 3” MPT Tablets or our 3” Cleaning Tablets; these are Tri-Chlor based chlorine tablets and are currently in short supply. However, we have several other options to keep your pool crystal clear all season without breaking the bank! In fact, our most popular program costs less than the standard Tri-Chlor program.
Option 1Nature’s Pure or Pool RX Mineral Salt, our most popular program, utilizes copper as a primary sanitizer and is used in conjunction with mineral salts and enzymes to keep your water naturally clear and algae free! This simple weekly program requires no tools, no new equipment and costs less than a traditional Tri-Chlor program. Option 2 NST Tablets, this program operates on a calcium-based chlorine tablet to maintain your chlorine level. We love this program for clients already high cyanuric acid levels or low calcium levels like Fort Wayne city water. These tablets can be used in a floating chlorinator but CANNOT be placed in a standard chlorine feeder. It will feel similar to a standard 3” tablet program and require weekly shock and algaecide. The cost per pound is slightly higher than its Tri-Chlor counterpart. Option 3OP Shock It & SUPER PAC, this new program will utilize our super potent liquid chlorine, OP Shock IT, to maintain chlorine levels along with a highly effective enzyme and algaecide. If you are already using our OP Shock IT for weekly maintenance, this will be an effortless transition for you; just requiring additional doses! The cost here will be similar to a Tri-Chlor program.
At this time, we do still have Poolife 3” MPT Tablets available in 21-lb. buckets, as well as, 3” Standard Tablets in 10-lbs and 25-lbs. We are limiting the purchase to 1-container of tablets per family this summer. Please call or stop in if you have any questions. We are confident we can find a program that works for your family and your budget!
