The current state of the world and the US economy has made many wary of selling or maintaining large-budget luxuries like swimming pools.

The Country Has Adjusted to the New Normal

It’s no secret that last year turned most American industries on their heads. While some businesses, such as those in healthcare and delivery services, saw massive booms in demand, most businesses experienced detrimental effects due to the novel coronavirus. With companies in hospitality, leisure, and luxury taking massive hits, many Pool Service companies were left wondering how they might have to adapt to deliver their services in a safe and healthy manner to their loyal customers.

However, now that the country has adjusted to the new normal, the COVID-19 pandemic has actually opened up a unique opportunity for swimming pool companies. Quarantine has left people desperate to get out of the house in settings that remind them of a time before the virus. Many are looking to their own backyards to provide this escape, which is where pool providers come in.

More Homeowners Can Afford the Luxury

We’ve been dealing with this pandemic for over a year now. In the beginning, many people accustomed to working in office environments suddenly converted to work from home roles. This was shocking, new, and scary. But, after some time, professionals working from home got used to their new working environment and schedule. Without the expense of commute times, eating out for lunch, or stopping for premium coffees, the change saved many of these workers a lot of money.

Now, they’re looking to spend that money on things that make their work from home life even better. Even though most people are still avoiding traveling, that doesn’t mean they don’t crave vacation. When they can’t go to paradise for a week, the next best thing is bringing paradise to them, and what better way to do so than with a new pool? Recent reports of sharp upward trends in pool orders indicate consumers are thinking the same thing.

A Surge in Pool Sales

Swimming pool sales have dramatically increased in the past few months, as has the demand for pool materials. Some companies who were experiencing lulls before the pandemic are reporting sales increases as high as 43%. 45% of members of the U.S. trade group Pool & Hot Tub Alliance are expecting at least a 10% rise in revenue in 2021, and many have contracts booked out as far as 2022.

Internationally, producers of above-ground and easy-to-build pools have experienced demands beyond their production capabilities. Other companies that handle and distribute pool-building materials have reported orders surging by over 200% at times. What initially began as a somber decline resulting in furloughs, lay-offs, and business closures has quickly backpedaled into a thriving, high-demand industry.
