When Is the Best Time to Go Pool Shopping in Wisconsin?

When is the best time to go swimming pool shopping in Wisconsin? You might think spring, just before pool-opening time. Or you might think summer, once temperatures hit the 80’s. While there’s never a bad time to go pool shopping, there has to be a best time, right? Yes, there is. At The Pool People, we are here to tell you the best time to shop for a new pool and the reasons behind it. In our estimation, the best time to go pool shopping is winter, followed by fall. Here’s why.


In regard to inventory, winter may be the best time to go pool shopping. Some seasonal models may still be available, as one year ends and a new one begins. You also have new swimming pool models being rolled out for the upcoming season.

Off-Season Sales

Because many people think spring and summer are the best times to buy a swimming pool, fall – and to a greater extent – winter may provide you an opportunity to save some money! Manufacturers often offer off-season sales during this time, which can mean big savings for you.

Pickup Schedule

If you would like to beat the spring and summer rush on people in the store, shopping for your new swimming pool in the fall or winter gives you that advantage. Select your pool and take it home at your convenience! Cut to the front of the line and choose from inventory that will make you smile.

Your Schedule

Manufacturers and store teams aren’t the only people with schedules. You have a schedule, too! Work, school, extracurricular and recreational activities… the sooner you can pick out your swimming pool, the sooner you can bring your calendar to the table and schedule everything before the spring rush.

Specific Need

Perhaps you have a specific need or a particular time that your new swimming pool needs to be installed and ready to go. Memorial Day? Spring Break? The end of the school year? A birthday party? Whatever that event or timeframe is, choosing your pool now can help you set everything in motion for the big day.

Spring Setup

Because so many people think spring and summer are the best times to buy a swimming pool, they wait until spring or summer to call. Doing so will lead them to a summer or fall installation if they are late to the game picking out their new pool. Shopping for your Wisconsin pool in the winter puts you at the front of the line for a spring setup, when the grass and landscaping around your new pool will most easily grow and flourish.

Time to Think

One last advantage to pool shopping in the winter (or fall) is having plenty of time to think through your choices. There will be no regrettable spur-of-the-moment decisions. Every decision you make about your new swimming pool can be made with deliberate though and consideration about what is best for your family. And if you were thinking about getting a larger size, no might be just the time to save on the perfect pool.
