Worried About the Chlorine Tablet Shortage? We Have the Solution!

Chlorine Shortage - Worried About the Chlorine Tablet Shortage? We Have the Solution!

Residential and commercial pools that use trichloro-s-triazinetrione (trichlor) as their primary sanitizer are now in jeopardy as these popular chlorine tablets are now in very short supply. When Hurricane Laura hit back in 2020, a fire swept through a plant in Louisiana that destroyed much of the domestic supply of trichlor.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, prices of trichlor have doubled for pool service companies and many suppliers have limited sales to two buckets per individual. As summer approaches, owners of residential and commercial pools are scrambling for a solution.

poolservicewatertest 300x225 - Worried About the Chlorine Tablet Shortage? We Have the Solution!Clearwater Enviro Technologies offers an affordable, environmentally friendly solution to disinfect water in residential and commercial swimming pools and hot tubs. Clearwater Pool Systems reduces the need for harmful chemicals and instead utilizes an ionization and ozone process to provide oxidization and control algae, bacteria and viruses. The OzoneMAX is a proven ozone system while MineralPURE utilizes ionization technology licensed by NASA. Together, they provide the most advanced “alternative to chlorine” system on the market today.

According to Ryan Duksa, Sales Executive for Clearwater Enviro Technologies, the company is prepared to meet the expected increase demand for their Clearwater Pool Systems products.

“We have dealers throughout the United States and in nearly 70 countries standing by to help people transition from chlorine to this healthy, eco-friendly, affordable alternative,” explains Duksa. “Our MineralPURE units are available online at Home Depot, as well as MineralPURE and OzoneMAX at Pool Warehouse”.

Duksa says that one of the most attractive aspects of the Clearwater Pool Systems products is the cost savings. “Not only is chlorine expensive, but it also breaks down components such as pipes and filters,” says Duksa. “Reducing chlorine use saves money on both chemicals and maintenance.”

Chlorine (whether generated in a salt pool or added manually) also creates a much less pleasant swimming experience. With working from home, families have had more time to swim as well so why not create the best swimming experience for you and your family!

From spas to water parks like Wet ‘n’ Wild, no pool is too big or small. NSF Certified ionizers are ready to provide a summer of swimming with the family.

Don’t let the trichlor shortage cause you to close access to your pool and/or hot tub. Contact us directly or get in touch with a Clearwater Pool Systems dealer to learn more today!

Tinker Air Force Base in Midwest City, Oklahoma is located in an area of the United States with extremely hard water.  The base needed to address their hard water issues, especially in their barracks and cafeteria.  They initially implemented one of the most costly hard water treatment options on the market – water softeners.  Not only are water softeners expensive to purchase, but they also cost a lot to operate.

Officials at Tinker began searching for an alternative to expensive water softeners.  After researching many hard water treatment options, they decided to have dozens of commercial ScaleBlaster units installed in their barracks and cafeteria areas.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler worked so well, they installed more throughout the base.  Best of all, it saved them money:

Chemical Free

Water softeners are expensive to maintain and require salt to operate.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is one of the most environmentally-friendly hard water treatment options available since it does not require chemicals or undergo a backwash process that pollutes the environment. This made it especially attractive since the base had implemented a green initiative.

Conserving Water

Water softeners waste water and, as mentioned above, require a backwash process.  Conserving water is not only responsible, but also saves money.

Our next article will look at another military base that has saved money by implementing the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler.

ScaleBlaster has become the commercial, industrial, and residential hard water solution of choice.  Not only is it a limescale eliminator that is effective at pipe scale removal / water scale removal, but it also prevents new scale from forming.

This plays an integral role in helping sports and entertainment venues improve the performance of their saunas, resolve limescale issues in restrooms, keep kitchen and food/beverage serving facilities up to speed and improve HVAC performance.  Today, we will look at two more reasons why ScaleBlaster is one of the preferred hard water treatment options for entertainment and sports venues.

Hot Water Heater Efficiency

Limescale wreaks havoc on hot water heaters.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is a limescale eliminator. This not only helps hot water heaters work more efficiently, but it prolongs their lifespan, both of which represent a long term cost savings.

Improved HVAC Performance

Water scale can affect the performance of HVAC systems. Installing a ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler on cooling towers, chillers, condenser lines, chilled water lines and boilers can help save tons of money on maintenance and repair costs. The water scale removal/pipe scale removal process begins as soon as ScaleBlaster is installed.

Keep Sprinkler Systems in Working Order

Environmentally Friendly Solution

Many companies have been placed under a microscope in regards to their environmental mission.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is used by numerous entertainment / sports venues because it is environmentally friendly and does not use any chemicals.

Resolving Limescale Issues in Restrooms

Limescale buildup in restroom and shower facilities at entertainment and sporting venues can cause significant issues.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler not only is effective in water scale removal/pipe scale removal, but it prevents new scale from forming. This keeps cleaning to a minimum and maintenance costs down.

ScaleBlaster and the Restaurant Industry

ScaleBlaster and the Restaurant Industry - ScaleBlaster and the Restaurant Industry

Limescale buildup costs food establishments thousands of dollars every year.  Many have tried hard water treatment options only to find that they are ineffective, costly, require ongoing maintenance and are not environmentally friendly.  If you are seeking a reliable, affordable and proven limescale eliminator for your restaurant, then we can help.  The restaurant industry has benefited from the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler in many ways.  Let’s take a closer look:

Improved Water Regulation

Some restaurants have steam tables with a float that regulates water levels.  Hard water can cause scale buildup and cause the float to not properly operate.  This continued issue requires costly labor, cleaning and replacement.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler prevents water scale buildup, thus eliminating the costs associated with ongoing maintenance.

Less Repair Bills

High end dishwashers are often used because they have incredible sanitization capabilities and can wash glassware and other dishes in minutes.  However, water scale can wreak havoc on these otherwise very efficient machines, thus resulting in high repair bills to keep them operational. Once installed, the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler handles existing buildup and prevents new scale from forming.  This eliminates the need for repairs associated with water scale.

Improved Function of Ice and Beverage Machines

Limescale buildup can affect the function of ice and beverage machines.  ScaleBlaster is a limescale eliminator that also prevents new scale as well, thus enabling these machines to function as they were designed.

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler has been used by commercial industries worldwide for three decades.  It is one of the most preferred hard water treatment options because it is not only effective in water scale removal/pipe scale removal, but it also prevents new scale from forming. Best of all, it is affordable, easy to install, chemical free, requires no ongoing maintenance and is environmentally friendly. Oh, and the return-on-investment is quite impressive as well!  If you are ready to save money and improve the function of equipment, fixtures and components that use water, then look no further. The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is the limescale eliminator you need to help improve the overall function of your restaurant.
