5 reasons to order your pool or spa earlier (rather than later!)
It is well known that temperature often influences the purchase of a pool or spa. Once the first warm rays of spring sunshine break through, many people rush to the store to get their hands on their next pool or spa (when it may be too late!). Did you know that fall is the best time to shop at your retailer? If it’s anything like last year, you’ll want to avoid the rush and stress of last-minute shopping!
Indeed, once again this year, many will surely convert their travel budget into a backyard vacation. Don’t wait until the last minute! See why ordering your pool or spa early is a definite advantage.
Last summer, the pandemic caused a production delay on the manufacturers’ side, resulting in a lack of inventory. Above-ground, in-ground, semi-inground, and spas: suppliers have seen their stock drop due to the high demand.
That’s why, if you order too late, there is no guarantee that you will get the size or model you want. Last summer’s high demand forced many people to settle for a different model due to lack of availability.
Installation date flexibility
Regardless of the model chosen, installation dates fly by as the season wears on. New sanitary measures also affect the availability of crews and delivery trucks.
Ordering your pool or spa in the fall will give you greater flexibility when it comes to an installation date. Choosing the time slot that suits you best for the installation will even allow you to enjoy it earlier in the season!
In-store expert support
Booking in the fall also guarantees you more access to experts in store to guide you towards the best purchase. Whether it’s a pool, spa, accessories or equipment, fall is the best time to visit your retailer and get all the advice you need!
They will also be able to take the time to answer all your questions. By starting early, you’ll be able to take the time you need to better plan your purchase.
Time to prepare your yard
If you are thinking of buying an in-ground pool, there are several factors to consider: excavation, plans, municipal permits, fencing and landscaping all require careful planning. Ordering your pool early will also give you more time to plan your outdoor landscaping. Note that the choice of materials and the weather can influence turnaround times.
If you are planning to create an outdoor space for your spa, you can take the time to evaluate what you need. Shelter or gazebo, patio, fence, landscaping: your dealer has loads of good ideas!
Equipment and accessories in stock
Get your accessories, equipment and chemicals without having to line up or worry about everything being sold out. By ordering equipment, such as your water heater, heat pump, cleaner, liner and filter in advance, you’ll be ready to go as soon as your pool is installed or opened up for the season. The purchase of a high-performance heat pump can even save you money on your electricity bill!
Spring is now!
September to December is, without a doubt, the best time to buy a pool or spa. Ordering in advance will save you a lot of stress and unpleasant surprises once warm weather arrives. Plus, the whole family will be able to enjoy it as soon as summer hits!
