Should You Buy a Swimming Pool Now?

The best answer to that depends on a few things. So, should you buy a swimming pool now? Let’s uncover why in this article.

First, the “now” is the end of September, the early part of October. Most people aren’t really thinking about swimming as they look toward pumpkin spice, chili, and all things fall.

However, fall and winter, or the off-season, is often a great time to buy a swimming pool. Whether you’re looking for an inground pool or an above ground pool, you may find this is the best time of year.

Let’s look at a few things to think about as you consider whether or not to buy today.

Demand is Usually Lower

In the spring and summer, everyone wants a pool. During this time of year, demand is often lower, so we can generally install your pool quicker.

You’ll Often Find a Sale

Yes, pool companies usually run a sale on above ground pools and sometimes even inground pools during the fall. It’s always a good idea to ask.

If You’re Ready, Buy Now

We always tell our customers that if they’re ready to buy a pool, they should buy it then.

Don’t wait until next season and get bogged down with wait lists. Don’t wait for prices to go down (in case they don’t). Set a budget and work within in to buy that pool when you are ready!

Our advice: buy a swimming pool when you’re ready. Don’t assume prices will go down next season or that some amazing deal will come along. Instead, use your budget and your desired timeline to determine when to get started on your dream pool.

We can’t predict the cost of above ground pools or inground construction because those prices rise and fall with the markets. The trend has been upward for the last several years, so if you’re ready, it’s a good idea to take the “plunge.”

You’ll find that there really is no wrong time to buy a pool. You may find a “better” time, but you can’t go wrong buying when you’re ready.

Do Your Research

When buying your pool now, make sure you research it and understand all of your many options for both above ground and inground pools. Check out our website, read our blog, contact us, or stop by. We are always here at three locations to answer your questions.

Plan for the Cost

You should buy a pool now if you have the finances ready to do so. There are many costs that go into a swimming pool, so come talk to us so you have a concrete idea. You can use our quote to decide if you can financially afford your pool.

We do offer financing options, so that may help you make your decision.

Decide When You Want Your Pool

If you want to open your pool in April and start swimming as soon as the weather warms up, you definitely want to buy your pool now.

Pick your target date, come talk to us, and we can help you plan the right install time.

Don’t Drain Your Above Ground Pool for Winter

Do you own an above ground pool? Have you ever heard that you shouldn’t drain your above ground pool before you get ready to close for the winter? Well, it turns out you don’t want to drain your above ground pool for winter. Why?

Let’s talk about the reasons you shouldn’t drain your above ground pool before you close it.

Keep Damage Your Pool

You don’t want to drain your above ground pool because you want to keep it structurally sound.

If you drained, and it sat empty in your backyard, it would fill with dirt and debris. It would also be filled with snow and ice.

Worse yet, it’s very expensive and time-consuming to refill and then chemically balance your pool in the spring if you have to refill the whole thing!

How to Close It

You can find all the instructions for closing your above ground pool on our website.

Use Air Pillows

Air pillows, also found at Ultra Modern, are another must-have accessory for closing your above ground pool!

Before you put your winter cover on, you want to put an air pillow in the center of your pool. Then, when the water freezes and expands, you won’t harm your pool wall, the cover, or the liner.

Your air pillow helps absorb the expansion of the water, keeping your above ground pool safe.

Use Water Bags

Water bags are a cost-effective and easy way to hold down the pool cover on your above ground pool. You can find them at any of our three stores.

Water bags can withstand the cold, and you can trust that they’ll secure your pool cover all winter!

Closing Your Above Ground Pool

These are just a few of our tips for closing an above ground pool. Be sure and check out the entire closing information for step-by-step instructions.

If you need help, please contact our expert service staff, and we’d be glad to help! Our retail team at all stores can help you with air pillows and water bags!
