Why is there a Chlorine Shortage?

Throughout the pandemic, there have been many different shortages, but now chlorine can be added to that list. 

Experts said the shortage is not a surprise. During the pandemic, there has been a huge increase in people installing pools in their backyards. 

Chlorine Shortage

On top of high demand, a major fire at a chemical plant in Louisiana happened last August, which destroyed about 80% of the nation’s supply of chlorine.

With the days heating up, experts fear the shortage will get worse. Many retailers are importing chlorine from foreign vendors just to keep up with the demand. Many stores have also begun to limit how much chlorine shoppers can buy at a time. 

Chlorine Genie – The Solution

The patented CHLORINE GENIE uses an electrolytic cell submerged in salty brine softened water to produce the chlorine your pool needs. The water is softened by a reverse osmosis system and water descaling system built right into the unit. The electrolytic cell breaks salt and water into the basic elements: chloride, sodium, hydrogen, and oxygen. The chloride ions combine to make pure chlorine which is then mixed with water and dispensed into the pool.
