The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many shortages in America. Who can forget the struggle to find toilet paper and disinfect wipes? Then it was rice, pasta, and baking supplies that were in short supply. Even bicycles have been scarce as people became anxious about using public transportation. But that’s not all. If you have been following the news, you may have heard that the latest item affected by pandemic-related supply chain issues are above-ground pools. Not to worry, we’re here to help customers get above-ground pools as quickly as possible during the shortage. Read on to find out how.
Why There Is an Above-Ground Pool Shortage
In light of the stay-at-home orders issued in many states, families have been improving their homes and outdoor spaces. In particular, above-ground swimming pools became the number one yard accessory. As we saw our plans for summer vacations go up in smoke, many of us decided to take a staycation in our backyard. The money we had planned to spend on summer camps and vacation trips could instead go toward a new pool. Consequently, the demand for above-ground pools has skyrocketed, with pool sales more than doubled.
It’s been tough for manufacturers to keep up with this increased demand for above-ground pools. Some factories have been shut down or are working at a reduced capacity. Materials, equipment, and labor have been in short supply. As a result, pools are sold out, back-ordered, and generally impossible to get for the next few months.
Parnell Pool & Spa Wants To Help
Parnell Pool & Spa wants to be sure you get your hands on an above ground pool when they are available again.
Right now, we are offering Cash & Carry Above-Ground Pools on a first-come, first-served basis. For 10% down, we will take your reservation for an above-ground pool for the Spring of 2021, perhaps sooner. Because the pools are so hard to come by, the 10% deposit is non-refundable, unless Parnell Pool & Spa is unable to fulfill the order due to production issues.
We want to help our customers get above-ground pools during the shortages, but supply may be limited for some time. So don’t miss out; reserve now to get a pool for your family!
