Why Buy Your Above Ground Pool From a Local Pool Dealer?

There’s nothing like an above ground pool on a hot summer day. It’s the perfect place to relax, cool down, and enjoy the small pleasures of life. However, there’s a lot to consider before buying one. First of all, where should you buy it? Should you try to save a few bucks and buy it online from a big box store? Or should you buy from a locally-owned pool company? When you see all the differences, you’ll see that buying from a local business is the easy choice.

So why should you buy your pool from a local pool dealer?

1. Installation and setup

Buying an above ground pool online means that you would have to install it yourself or hire a contractor to put it together for you. The problem with a DIY installation is that it often affects the warranty of the pool. By purchasing your above ground pool from a locally-owned pool company, you can count on the installation and setup often being included in the price of the pool, as well as having trained professionals set up and install the pool.

2. You get a customized service

An online pool vendor will most likely sell the same things to everybody regardless of any peculiarities that might exist in their houses. This is as opposed to buying from a local store where they might even come check out your space before helping you decide the best pool for you. Customized service is just one benefit of having a professional above ground pool builder work with you on your purchase and installation.

3. You deal with real people

There’s something to be said about having a pool company you can establish a relationship with. That way you can walk into the store and meet someone who can talk to you and address any issues you might have. Buying an above ground pool comes with enough considerations already. You don’t need the extra stress of sending emails and waiting for a response from an automated customer service department before you get an answer to your question.

4. Nature of the product

Since you can walk into a store and inspect the pools before buying them, you’re certain of the specs and looks. However, an online store might put up a poorly photoshopped image that is not an accurate representation of the physical product. There’s something to be said about being able to see and touch the actual pool prior to purchasing.

5. Price

Above ground pools definitely range in price with your least expensive options coming from a big box store. You can cheap out and save a little money on a low-quality product. However, it might not be worth it in the long run as cheaper doesn’t always mean better. There’s a risk of wall failure with above ground pools, and this is most often caused by substandard materials and poor installation. So, if you want a high-quality above ground pool, a higher price tag shouldn’t hold you back. You’re making a purchase that can bring fun and joy for years to come. So why not get professional service, installation and a place to go if you encounter any issues?

6. Impact on the community

Did you know out of every dollar you spend on local businesses, 68 percent remains in the city as opposed to 43 percent for chain retail and online stores? Thus, purchasing from a local dealer can significantly help your community.
