Salt Update

06 April 2022

 by Angus Donald

We regret we've still not received another salt delivery since our last update on 25 March, and judging by the volume of calls and visits we're receiving, some customers are getting pretty desperate.

Our salt supplier has advised we will receive our next delivery on Tue 12 April (might be worthwhile calling to check)
As mentioned previously, the impact of not having salt in your pool is that the saltwater chlorinator will not be able to produce the chlorine to keep the pool sanitised. When this happens, there's no need to panic. In the absence of salt, it's simply a matter of adding chlorine manually (liquid or granular), until the salt arrives.  Bring a water test in and we'll give you the correct advice specific to your pool.

We recommend being a bit careful of some of our competitors who seem to be taking advantage of the salt shortage by charging unreasonably high prices.  In the photo attached, we see one of the better known big box retailers is charging $29.11 for a 15kg bag of salt. This equates to $38.81 for a 20kg bag. Doesn't seem fair to us.
