We recognize the concerns about the chlorine shortage....
I'm sure everyone has seen the news and has finally heard about the chlorine shortage. Hurricane Laura destroyed a TriChlor plant in Louisiana at the end of last season which has put a damper on the production of our SilkGuard® tablets and sticks as well as other brand chlorine tablets. While BioLab has ramped up production elsewhere, they are still trying to catch up.
We understand that everyone is concerned about their pool and swimming safety this summer. As pool professionals we are here to help you navigate through the season, even if we have to do it without chlorine tablets/sticks. We can find a solution for you no matter what your needs are.
• Continue to search for SilkGuard® Complete tablets and sticks during the season as we will be receiving the orders we've placed, just in a slower than usual fashion. We have also started a list of customers waiting for our delivery. If you are on this list you will be called as soon as we have delivery confirmation to pre-pay for your order so you will have first dibs on our next shipment. We hope to see more tablets in the next 3-6 weeks, for now we have very few small containers left, but we are fully stocked with shock and granular chlorine.
•We can utilize other products that will help improve chlorine performance or get you closer to the same experience as using our SilkGuard® Complete tabs and sticks – primarily with Smart Shock®, Pool Complete®, Algae Complete®, PoolTonic™ and Optimizer®.
•Don’t under-dose. The key is making sure chlorine levels remain within the 1-4 ppm range for as long as possible and keeping the water free of things that will tax your chlorine and use it up faster.
•Visit us, a BioGuard dealer to receive expert advice and solutions to keep swimming all season. We also offer free water testing and recommend your pool to be tested every 2 weeks.
Thank you so much for sticking with us! We look forward to continuing to support each other during these challenging times.
