It’s Gas Release Season

July 13th, 2018

Gas releases caused by mishandling chlorine and muriatic acid are starting already. A recent release in the San Jose area affected 35 children and adults. The hazmat situation caused people to report nausea, vomiting, trouble breathing and other symptoms, according to local news reports. Ten ambulances responded, taking victims to nine area hospitals.

The video interview with San Jose Fire Capt. Mitch Matlow, found in the news report, lays out all the dangers that can result from mishandling chemicals, including the public health and publica safety consequences. As a pool operator, you could face liability for those consequences and suffer business losses while your pool is out of operation.

Onsite chlorine generation, which converts a saline solution to chlorine, reduces the need to have bulk chlorine and muriatic acid on your pool site. Salt is your raw material. Our line of ChlorKing NEXGEN onsite chlorine generators come in several models to produce 10 to 80 pounds of chlorine per day. They are ideally suited for all commercial swimming pools and water parks, and single generators can serve multiple pools.

ChlorKing offers 36- and 60-month Equipment Supply & Maintenance Programs for NEXGEN systems, enabling you to put one to work at your pool for a monthly payment instead of capital outlay. If a purchase works best for you, your NEXGEN system in the United States could qualify for accelerated depreciation under Section 179 of the federal tax code.
