Oh No!  I don’t have a pool, but this sounds awful!  Experts say to stock up sooner than later.

 Here are the details:

Chlorine supplies are running low due to a fire at a chemical plant in Louisiana last August that was damaged by Hurricane Laura. As a result, prices for tabs have skyrocketed.
“A steep price increase is likely. The extent of the chlorine shortage is still unknown,” said B&B Pool and Spa Center, a Chestnut Ridge, NY-based retailer, on its web site. “While it is still early yet for the swimming season, it is advisable to prepare now for your pool opening. That includes stocking up on chemicals needed to get you through the majority, if not the entire swimming season.”
