Does China Produce Most Of The Chlorine Used To Disinfect U.S. Tap Water?
And will there be a shortage in the U.S. resulting in a boil-water order?

I've been asking around and can't seem to get a decent answer.

But, what I have found is that in 2018, U.S. production of chlorine amounted to a total of 11.22 million metric tons and from that 4% is used for tap water treatment: 400k tons sounds like we don't need to import it.

No, they don't.

A large percentage of water treatment plants produce their own chlorine (12%) onsite using brine (salt NaCl) water and running a large current through it to seperate the Na from the Cl.

For the water plants that don't make their own (older plants), there are numerous US suppliers that make the chlorine here in the US. It's very easy to make.

True, manufacturing chemicals is something the U.S. never really outsourced.

Yep. This is how many pools work as well. Add salt, turn on the current in the chlorine generator and poof, you have chlorine.

Most of the things from China are junk. The tools are terrible, you always are best off going USA, German or Swiss. Chinese stainless steal will usually start to rust in a few years. USA or German stainless will last for hundreds of years. A lot of cheap junk comes from China and it's made with slave labor. Counterfeits, as well. NEVER buy food products from China. You could die.

Even though i have no real knowledge of chemistry, that's what I thought.

Appreciate the information.

Once more products are being produced by people at home then it will just switch from goods being purchased in China. The craftsmanship really shows with products produced domestically.

Plastics and rare earth components are what China makes best. Computers and some plastic goods will go way up in value since very few are being produced and unable to make up demand.
