The demand for chlorine is at an extreme high due to a fire at a large chlorine plant last year. This
shortage is projected to cause an increase in pricing this summer. We would like to inform our customers about what is going on in our industry so that we can prepare for possible increases in the future.
Our community has been highly affected by a chlorine shortage. This shortage has been caused by a chlorine fire at Biolab. In Louisiana this Biolab factory caught fire and did not stand a chance. Over 800 tons of trichlor (which is used for chlorine tablets) was burned. The loss of this factory will result in a nation wide shortage that will be seen through the 2021 season. This significant damage has caused pool companies to stock up on as much resources and supplies as possible.
This lack of material could lead to a future increase in chlorine pricing. Another option that Vistancia Pool care can offer to our customers is liquid chlorine rather than chlorine tablets. Keeping your water healthy will result in reducing the need for as much chlorine. Call us if you have any questions, we are happy to inform you.

HOW VARIABLE-SPEED PUMPS SAVE ENERGY
When we talk about pool renovations, repairs and retrofits that reduce a pool’s energy consumption, the focus typically turns to the pump, because it consumes more energy than any other piece of pool equipment. Plus, a well-designed variable-speed pump can reduce the energy costs of running a swimming pool by up to 90 percent.
Historically, pool pumps with induction motors that run at only one or two speeds have drawn more energy than is required to circulate pool water. That is because a pump that can run at only one speed must use a powerful enough speed to do the pump’s most demanding job (e.g., running a waterfall or pool cleaner). However, it takes far less power to simply keep water filtered—a difference single-speed pumps cannot address.
No matter what kind of pump is being used, slower pump speeds save energy. They also dramatically reduce the noise level associated with traditional pool pumps and reduce wear on not only the pump itself but also on filters, heaters, chlorinators and other equipment that water flows through.
Thank you for being a customer at Visntacia Pool Care. We look forward to serving you in 2021. We wish you peace, happiness, and an abundance of good health this new year
