With public swimming pools closed, pool set up firms are cashing in

Many municipal and public swimming pools would open on Memorial Day weekend, but the opening dates have been postponed due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Pool installation companies say they make money. “The pool season has totally exploded,” said Ashley Meucci, owner of the Pool & Spa Outlet. “Our pool, spa and hot tub sales have increased. I’d say 300% across the board.” Meucci said these sales started in April and have not stopped. “It’s outrageous,” she said. “My family has been in the pool business for 35 years and we’ve never seen anything like it.” She credits these sales to the closings of public and private pools that got people getting something in their yard this summer. “Lots of the hot tub customers we’ve sold to in the past few weeks have said they are going to use it and buy a hot tub because their vacation for this summer has been canceled – all-round fun in your yard, “said Meucci also stores and buy pool heaters that extend the pool season. Meucci said water safety is another concern. Her company tests pool water with up to 100 samples a day. She said the coronavirus does not survive in chlorine but people want to make sure that your water is safe. “We will check all of your levels, your disinfection levels, your pH, your alkalinity and just make sure the water is up he’s used to, “she said. Chad Johnston has owned a pool for four years. “It’s just relaxing,” he said. “It’s nice to go out and turn the music on and just chill with the summer.” Johnston said he wouldn’t go to a public pool now, even if they were open, not because of the virus but because he has his own. He said keeping his pool water safe was a priority. “I know I am safe, my children are safe, so there is some certainty that everything will be fine,” he said. While Meucci said the claim, finding pools this year baffled her. “The sales are just honest, it’s nothing that anyone in our industry has ever seen,” she said. “The way they just shot up. It just totally exploded with pool and spa sales.” Meucci said there are currently six crews installing pools, which is the highest they have ever had. She said the wait to install a pool is months – above-ground pools are booked by the end of July and pools in the ground by October. You are already making deposits for the next year.
