A Message from HASA, Inc. CEO Chris Brink

To our HASA Family:

With the wide concern about the coronavirus (COVID-19) in mind, HASA would like to reassure our extended community in light of this unprecedented global, national and local crisis.

For 55 years, our company has been a leading producer and distributor of high quality water treatment products used to sanitize water.  This has meant keeping municipal water systems, water used at home for drinking, cooking and recreation and water containment vessels for industrial, municipal and recreational water treatment, safe and sanitized.

We are proud to serve our network of essential channel partners – municipal industrial water system managers, maintenance supply distributors and dealers, service professionals, and professional and grocery distributors – to help keep more than 20 billion gallons of water and millions of people, homes and public institutions, safe and clean, across America, each and every year.

Many of you have questions about sanitization of your water during this time – be it your municipal drinking water, water in the community, or water used elsewhere, whether for cooking, bathing, or exercising in a pool.  We hope the following information will help:

Municipal Drinking Water Sanitization:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking water.  Conventional water treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection, such as those in most municipal drinking water systems, should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”  Please read additional details about CDC findings regarding municipal drinking water safety on the official CDC website: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/water.html 

Pool/Spa Sanitization:

According to the CDC, “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs.  Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”  Please read additional details about CDC findings regarding swimming pool and spa safety on the official CDC website: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/water.html 

HASA, Inc. is continuing operations at all facilities, and operating under all protocols in accordance with U.S. Government and CDC recommendations and guidelines.  Our products help make water safe and are essential to public health.  We do not currently expect government-mandated changes to impact — and for the benefit of the public, and the safety of our water supply at this critical time, we urge the government at all levels not to impact — the fundamental aspects of our operations or our ability to supply the many communities we serve.

Personally, I extend my wishes for your safety and that of your families in this difficult time for our nation.  I wish to thank the incredible, loyal workforce at HASA, who have been delivering premium water sanitization treatment solutions to American homes and business since 1964.  This endeavor does not change in light of COVID-19, it becomes more important.

We are resolved to do whatever is necessary to make sure our communities, our co-workers, our families and yours, are kept safe and healthy.

In good health,
Chris Brink Signiture
