Increase in price of pool chemicals
« on: September 03, 2018, 10:54:28 AM »
We have been told by our maintenance company the price of pool chemicals here has doubled in price does anyone know if this is correct or not please as surely this cant be right if inflation has not risen by 100%? Thanks for any info on this

There have been lots of price increases recently and many of them higher than inflation.  Building materials such as timber and cement have jumped in price dramatically recently.

I've no idea about pool chemicals, so maybe someone who has a pool can answer you - but I wouldn't be surprised if its true.

Pool chemicals are priced in US$, so a price increase seems inevitable. Our company buys what they will need for the season each January, so hopefully, we'll be OK until next summer

You know that is not what I meant as all I did was convert the lira price back to sterling to make the point that it is not all bad news.
