Could this put a damper on some people’s summer plans?

We pretty much sold out of all of our three inch tablets in the past two days. In the next week or so we are going to have a three inch tablet alternative that’s going to be here. It’s a different formula but it’s going to work just the same even better than the three inch pucks.

Craig says there are a number of alternatives available that she says should meet the needs of pool owner throughout the summer.

We have completely non-chlorine systems available. You don’t use any chlorine at all. We also have what is called a power ionizer. It’s a copper based system. It works extremely well for us
