To Our Valued Customers,

As another swimming season approaches, we’d like to update you on some of the challenges facing the pool industrysalt water swimming pool for the 2022 season. Over the last two years, we’ve seen product shortages and supply chain issues have an effect on almost every corner of the market, and while many things have improved for the upcoming season, there are still a few things of which we’d like our customers to be aware.

Pool Industry Facing Product Shortages and Supply Issues

The biggest issue facing pool owners this year will be price increases. Seemingly every product has gone up in price, especially equipment and chemicals. The cost of chlorine and even some basic balancing chemicals has increased substantially, so we recommend that you frequently bring your water in to be tested so that w

e can discuss the many ways to reduce chlorine deterioration and save you from wasting a great deal of money pouring unnecessary amounts of chemicals into your pool. From upgrading to a salt pool to correctly using products such as algaecides and borates, there are several ways to save, and our knowledgeable staff will be available seven days a week to help you do this. 

Costs Have Increased, Especially Chemicals -TEST H2O Frequently

We are currently fully stocked with all the necessary supplies and chemicals, but we’ve been informed by our distributors that chlorine tablets and algaecides especially may become scarce as the season progresses. 

Balancing Chemicals May Become in Short Supply

Another challenge we are facing is delays in scheduling service technician appointments. The past two years have seen increases in pool ownership skyrocket. In an effort to meet this unprecedented demand we have added more skilled service technicians, but we are already seeing our schedule fill up faster than ever for opening and repair services. We ask that you schedule any necessary services as soon as possible, and please understand that we may not be able to perform some jobs for several weeks. 

Schedule Appointments As Soon As Possible

We are really looking forward to doing everything possible to ensure that you and your family have a healthy and memorable swimming season. We will be open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm, Saturdays from 9am to 3pm, and Sundays from 10am to 2pm.
