This summer will see another backyard pool explosion as installers work to fill orders placed during the 2020 pandemic pool boom.
Mermaid Pools, for example, is sold out of in-ground pools for 2021 and is taking orders for 2022. The National Post recently reported that the city of Mississauga, Ont., received the same number of homeowner pool permit applications in the first three months of 2021 as the city received in all of 2019, and The Philadelphia Inquirer reported in April 2021 that “demand for pools surges for second year amid canceled vacations and long days at home.”
Combined with standing seasonal water safety risks to pets like algae poisoning from pond water, lakes, and other natural cool-off spots, educating pet owners about pet water safety is again extra important this year.
