LIVERPOOL, NY (WSYR-TV) – A nationwide lack of chlorine has created pool problems in the United States. In Liverpool, Cannon Pools and Spas is hoping to step down the pool supply path.

Supply bottlenecks cause problems in many industries

Cliff Malzman, president of Cannon Pools, says the past few months have been spent stocking up for the summer.

“Last year we had a lot of trouble with the pandemic and in anticipation (for this year) we brought truckloads of goods every day in October, November, December and January to anticipate this year,” Malzman said. “So there won’t be enough chlorine at national level, but we have five warehouses of chlorine locally.”

Pool installations will be popular again this summer. Malzman says he has around 1,100 pool installations planned for the summer months.
