A message from our CEO

In these trying times for our country and the world, the health and safety of our Watson’s family is our No. 1 concern. That includes our employees, their families and our customers.

Recent decisions by governments in several states in which we operate, have led to our decision to temporarily shut down all large format stores in all markets.

We will keep our small-format chemical and accessories stores open, as part of our mission to help customers keep their pool and spa water clean, safe and healthy. Government regulation allows for us to operate these stores as deemed necessary.

Chemicals, accessories and supplies that families need are available now on for shipping to your home. Local delivery or pickup is also available in select markets. See for specific hours and options at your local store.

Please remember during these most difficult times that American strength, resolve and compassion have always, and will always, get us through.

Stay positive, stay healthy & pray for all of those in need throughout the world.

Erik Mueller
