Chlorine for your STR pools?

6 Replies

Is anyone having trouble finding chlorine tablets?  My local Wal Mart was sold out yesterday.  A hardware store had 8 pound containers for $45.  It's my prediction that this summer people will be trading ammunition for chlorine and vice versa.  How stocked up are you on both?

Yes, there is going to be a chlorine shortage this year -- there is a shortage in supply due to the factory fire and an increase in demand due to all the new pools being built.

I would convert to salt ASAP before everyone else realizes and drives the price up!
