Evoqua Helps Pool Operators Survive Chlorine Shortage
As the pool industry navigates the challenges of the chlorine shortage, Evoqua Water Technologies is urging operators to use this as an opportunity to protect themselves from future chemical supply issues. The water treatment specialist has highlighted that through using innovative technology solutions, pools can build site resilience and move from survive to thrive.

The chlorine supply shortage has been building for some time, leading to reduced pool timetables and, in some cases, site closures. The issue has shone the spotlight on how effective disinfection is critical to the survival of aquatics facilities. And, the high level of reliance operators have on the delivery of chemicals for disinfection, as well as the cost of purchasing them. The supply challenges have pushed the price of chlorine up by 50% - 60%, at a time when the industry is already facing the cost pressures of energy market volatility.

Evoqua is calling for pool operators to increase their site resilience through onsite chemical generation technology, so they are protected from inevitable future chemical supply chain issues and price hikes. Onsite chemical generation is most effective through products such as Evoqua’s OSEC® system, which removes the need to purchase bulk chemicals for disinfection.

OSEC is a leading electrochlorination system which produces sodium hypochlorite onsite, on demand through the electrolysis of a brine solution. It’s an incredibly safe, reliable, efficient and user-friendly alternative to the bulk purchasing and storing of chemicals onsite.

Onsite chemical generation also helps reduce operating costs as electrochlorination works with just salt, water, and electricity. Hypochlorite is therefore generated onsite at a significantly lower cost than purchased hypochlorite and the OSEC system can be programmed to make use of off-peak power to reduce costs further.

Duncan Ockendon, Aquatics Sales Manager at Evoqua Water Technologies, said: “The chlorine shortage has had a huge impact across the aquatics industry, and we’ve been working closely with operators to help make sure this doesn’t hit them hard again. Site resilience is power and it’s vital that pools do what they can to protect themselves from future supply chain challenges, keep their doors open and profits healthy. Operators can take a proactive approach to eliminating dependence on commercial chemical suppliers with onsite generation technology.”

The OSEC system from Evoqua has been designed with pool operators in mind and has over 30 years of installation history behind it. It’s easy to operate and maintain and, unlike other technologies on the market, it doesn’t require acid washing, which makes it safer and simpler to operate. It’s a safe, efficient, reliable and cost-effective solution to build site resilience.
