It is a fact that our lifestyle changed drastically. Many who are now working from home are moving to other states or neighborhoods, which means getting the house updated. One of those items for the house is a swimming pool.

If someone purchases a pool and spa combo today, they may not see the final product until 2022 depending on the back log of the pool builder they purchased their pool from.

Lead times from manufacturers and retailers, as well as builders, are extending time frames to complete pools due to the increase of demand and material shortages.
