4 Reasons to Buy a Pool in the Fall
“Buy a pool in the fall? Summer is already gone – what a waste!” In the Midwest, buying a pool in the fall might sound silly at first, but it’s a strategic move made by the savviest shoppers. Before becoming discouraged at the idea of buying a pool in fall, explore the benefits of installing a pool now versus spring.
Beat the New Year Price Increase
The start of a new year promises a price surge passed down from the manufacturers. Because the cost of pools and materials increases, the customer is naturally affected by higher expenses. Making the decision to purchase and install a pool before winter begins will result in savings on everything from pools to installation.
Install in Ideal Conditions
For many homeowners, rapid and worry-free installation is a top priority. Indiana’s winters make it impossible to complete a pool installation, and spring still presents some of the winter weather problems. Instead, choosing fall to purchase and install a pool provides ideal conditions in which installation can be completed safely, on time, and on budget.
Have Time to Plan
Waiting until the spring and summer pool rush doesn’t allow any time to customize a new pool’s outdoor space with your unique style. Do you want to throw pool parties, design the surrounding landscape, or create a backyard oasis? By the time your spring installation is complete, it may be too late. Completing a pool installation in the fall provides about 6 months of free time during which you can complete the following:
• Learn how to maintain your new pool
• Choose poolside design elements
• Adorn your pool with plants and flowers
• Enjoy time with family in your pool before the entire neighborhood wants to come over
Convenient Scheduling and Availability
Once winter is over and spring begins, warmer temperatures trigger memories of poolside parties, water sports, and cooling off after a long, hot day. For contractors, the result is a greater demand for pool installations and a fuller schedule. Unfortunately for customers, availability may be limited or, in some case, not convenient. By planning ahead and choosing the fall season to install a pool, you benefit from greater availability and the option to schedule installation during a time suitable for you.
