Navigating the Shortage of Pool Supplies this Season
We’ve officially reached the infamously indecisive month of March. Some days are warm and sunny while other days feel comparable to the harshest of winters. Thankfully, daylight savings is sneaking up on us, the sun is finally starting to grace us with its presence more consistently, and soon enough, we will be ditching the jackets, scarves, and boots! With spring just around the corner, many of you are gearing up for the much-anticipated pool season.
This year has brought new hardships, but our excellent track record is proof that no obstacle is unmanageable. Ever since 2020, the list of trials and tribulations that accompany your annual prep for pool-season-kickoff has only lengthened. The beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic caused a spike in the demand for recreational activities and entertainment in the home. Naturally, this resulted in a scarcity of necessary supplies and an inflation of their respective prices. During the summer of 2021, a large fire at a Louisiana chemical plant induced an extreme shortage of chlorine tablets used for residential pool cleaning. Before we could even begin to recover, a late winter storm in Texas caused a quick decline in the production of resin and other materials used to manufacture residential swimming-pool pumps and filtration systems. When 2021 ended once and for all, the new year brought with it high hopes for a fresh start and yet another hard hit–the large fire in New Jersey that spread over Qualco Inc., a chemical plant that produces the chemicals used for swimming pools and spas. Exhausted yet?
