Worried About the Chlorine Tablet Shortage? We Have the Solution!

alternative to chlorine

Residential and commercial pools that use trichloro-s-triazinetrione (trichlor) as their primary sanitizer are now in jeopardy as these popular chlorine tablets are now in very short supply.  When Hurricane Laura hit back in 2020, a fire swept through a plant in Louisiana that destroyed much of the domestic supply of trichlor.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, prices of trichlor have doubled for pool service companies and many suppliers have limited sales to two buckets per individual. As summer approaches, owners of residential and commercial pools are scrambling for a solution.

alternative to chlorineClearwater Enviro Technologies offers an affordable, environmentally friendly solution to disinfect water in residential and commercial swimming pools and hot tubs.  Clearwater Pool Systems reduces the need for harmful chemicals and instead utilizes an ionization and ozone process to provide oxidization and control algae, bacteria and viruses. The OzoneMAX is a proven ozone system while MineralPURE utilizes ionization technology licensed by NASA.  Together, they provide the most advanced “alternative to chlorine” system on the market today.

According to Ryan Duksa, Sales Executive for Clearwater Enviro Technologies, the company is prepared to meet the expected increase demand for their Clearwater Pool Systems products.

“We have dealers throughout the United States and in nearly 70 countries standing by to help people transition from chlorine to this healthy, eco-friendly, affordable alternative,” explains Duksa. “Our MineralPURE units are available online at Home Depot, as well as MineralPURE and OzoneMAX at Pool Warehouse”.

Duksa says that one of the most attractive aspects of the Clearwater Pool Systems products is the cost savings. “Not only is chlorine expensive, but it also breaks down components such as pipes and filters,” says Duksa.  “Reducing chlorine use saves money on both chemicals and maintenance.”

Chlorine (whether generated in a salt pool or added manually) also creates a much less pleasant swimming experience. With working from home, families have had more time to swim as well so why not create the best swimming experience for you and your family!

From spas to water parks like Wet ‘n’ Wild, no pool is too big or small. NSF Certified ionizers are ready to provide a summer of swimming with the family.

Don’t let the trichlor shortage cause you to close access to your pool and/or hot tub.  Contact us directly or get in touch with a Clearwater Pool Systems dealer to learn more today!

Selecting an Ozone / Swimming Pool Ionization System

Ozone for swimming pools is now very popular.  Using a pool ionization system in conjunction with an ozone pool system helps you achieve the closest solution to a “no chlorine pool” possible. The Clearwater Pool System combines the best pool ionization system and ozone pool systems on the market.  Let’s take a look to see how each works.


This is one of the most advanced swimming pool ionizers on the market. MineralPURE is equipped with a micro-processer control box and copper / silver electrodes set slightly apart from one another.  The control box delivers low voltage DC current to the electrodes, which causes some of the atoms to lose an electron and become positive. Water running through the control box sweeps away many of the ions, resulting in copper / silver being dispersed into the water and purifying it.  Not only does this provide long term purification without chemicals, but the ions remain in the water and prevent recontamination. Although this pool ionization system is considered revolutionary today, it actually incorporates technology used thousands of years ago.


OzoneMAX is the most effective ozone pool system on the market today. Like ionization, ozone for swimming pools also helps purify the water.  OzoneMAX safely injects ozone into the water, resulting in instant purification.

The Clearwater Pool System

Ozone pool systems and swimming pool ionizers are both effective in purifying pool water.  The Clearwater Pool System offers the best of both worlds. This complete system offers both ozone and ionization to offer the closest alternative to a no chlorine pool.
