Episode #62, So What Exactly IS Happening in the Chemical Industry, with Alicia and Andrea from BioLab
In addition to the supply and demand stress that everyone in the industry has felt, BioLab had the added challenge of a factory fire. Hurricane Laura caused a fire that destroyed its plant that manufactures trichlor, one of the main forms of chlorine used in the swimming pool (and sometimes spa) industry. Alicia Stephens and Andrea Chaney from BioLab are on the podcast to help explain what happened and why, besides the fire, you’re experiences chemical shortages and delays. They also give an overview of the different types of chlorine used in the hot tub and pool industries.
