In this final survey issue of Service Industry News, the regional trends with respect to chemicals and maintenance equipment are reviewed.
Specifically, the survey results report the prevalence of different types of sanitizers being used, including liquid chlorine, trichlor, dichlor, and calcium hypochlorite, and the costs of using each, on a regional level.
Also addressed is the usage of various automatic pool cleaners, such as pressure side, suction side and robot.
The results are in and once again, show some interesting trends.
Across the country, trichlor tabs are the most common method of chlorination, with liquid chlorine a close second. It hasn’t always been so, but compared to liquid chlorine, trichlor is slightly cheaper.
