With swim weather long gone and winter right around the corner, that family pool you’ve been wanting is probably the last thing on your mind. But, don’t extinguish the dream quite yet! Right now is a great time to get a pool for next spring and take advantage of end-of-season clearance sales.
The Right Time to Buy
While it’s hard to promise how long inventory will remain during this busy season, fall and winter is generally a good time to get an above-ground pool. Pool dealers, in general, are clearing out stock and getting ready for next year’s orders, and it’s no different here at The Pool People. So sure, you’re not going to be swimming in it for awhile, but now is the right time to buy your new pool. And trust us, the kids will be just as happy to learn they’re getting a pool now as they will if you wait until next year.
By the time the end of the year rolls in, pool dealers like to balance their books with zero pools remaining. So, if you can snag a pool right now, you should get a great deal.
If you do get your pool now, you can either store it unopened until next year (it makes the PERFECT Christmas gift!), or you can go ahead and get it installed.
Waiting to Install Until Next Spring
If you’re not ready to install your pool this fall, there’s one thing to remember: Keep it dry. As long as you store your pool in your shed, garage, basement — someplace where it will be completely dry — it will be just fine. Of course, when winter weather hits, very cold spaces, like a metal storage building, can allow condensation to form on the items inside. So, it’s best to store your new pool in a room where the temperature will not drop too severely.
Installing Your New Pool Now
If you’d like your new pool to be ready to use at the first sign of warm weather, why not install it now? Just remember that once assembled, your pool should always be filled. Just prepare the ground, assemble your pool, fill it to just below the skimmer, and balance the water. Then cover it tightly and enjoy seeing it in your backyard, ready to go when swim season 2021 starts!
