Pool Salt Sunshine Coast

The pool salt shortage continues on the Sunshine Coast and it is likely to continue throughout the winter season. We have been unable to secure a steady stream of pool salt supply since November 2021, due to many contributing factors.

Currently all pool salt and minerals are sourced in Australia, and increased demand due to a stop on imports, the high amount of rainfall Australia wide recently, and more pools. Combine the effects of the logistical problems and employee shortages across the country, plus all other knock on effects from our recent world issues and shortages of many pool products are now evident.

Low on Pool Salt? We have the Solution!

We have managed to keep the enough salt & minerals (magnesium) in most of our regular client’s pools, but some pools need pool salt or have low pool water salt readings. Low salt or magnesium means the pool’s chlorinator or equipment is not able to produce enough sanitizer to keep the pool clean and will eventually cause a green pool.

The best solution is to substitute the sanitizer or chlorine normally produced by pool equipment with Stabilized Tablets in Floating Dispensers. First turn down the sanitizer (Chlorinator) output or percentage, so not to damage the equipment. Then add a floating dispenser to the pool with stabilized chlorine tablets…remember to add enough tablets to dispenser for the pool size (extra dispensers may be required for larger pools).

As the tablets slowly dissolve, every 7-14 days add tablets to the dispenser. This will vary depending on the temperature and quality of pool water. We are well prepared for the shortage to continue and have a healthy stock of floating dispensers and stabilized chlorine tablets.

The perfect solution of course is to give us a call, and we can attend and do all the work!
