The Early Bird Gets the WormAccording to the definition of “the early bird gets the worm,” being first improves your chances of success. In 2020, that often meant toilet paper and cleaning supplies. Today, it refers to chlorine shock for your swimming pool.

To maximize your chances of getting your hands on enough pool chlorine to last you through the 2021 season, we encourage you to shop early. In fact, during our Annual Chemical Sale, you can even save up to 20% on your chlorine!

Let’s look at why there’s a chlorine shortage and how you can make sure you’re set for this year’s pool season.

The History Behind the Shortage

Like the toilet paper shortage, it all started with the COVID-19 pandemic. We were all worried, so most of us stocked up on this we really didn’t need.

In addition, our government-imposed “stay cations” and travel restrictions kept us at home. This in turn caused a huge boom in swimming pool sales.

Together, these created an increase in demand for chlorine pool chemicals. What’s more, as more and more people bought and used their pools, their sanitization needs rose as well. More people swimming and a desire to keep everything uber clean came together in a perfect storm.

If you thought that was all leading to the chlorine shortage, we have more problem to add to the fire. Hurricane Laura damage the BioLab plant in Louisiana in August 2020. Biolab is the parent company of BioGuard premium pool chemicals which we sell.

This plant makes 40% of the chlorine tablets in the United States. The hurricane led to a fire that lasted three days. At the end, it destroyed the plant.
