Refurbishments dominate pool sector growth

Refurbishments are a lucrative area of industry growth in the swimming pool sector: dominating it for yet another year, according to the latest results from Golden Coast’s State of the Wet Leisure Industry Survey.

The trend is so strong that nearly half of all companies working with pools find that upgrades form their core business.

“Owners are always looking for ways to get better value from their pools – whether that’s reducing the time spent on maintenance, increasing its versatility or improving the cost of ownership.

“That’s why it’s so important that our industry is ready to take advantage of the opportunities by inspiring customers with ways of creating their dream pool… and there’s no better place to start than with its cover. “

The DEL Moon, which is available exclusively in the UK through Golden Coast – has proved especially popular with customers and is the wet leisure distributor’s best-selling cover solution: combining high-quality construction with sheer versatility. Suitable for use with new and existing builds, the Moon is a great match for indoor or outdoor pools and can be supplied with mains or solar power.

DEL is a firm favourite with installation teams, as Jamie explains: “When it comes to providing technical support, we strive to offer the industry’s most comprehensive. From measuring to installation, we have a wide-range of resources available. And, when you can’t afford to waste time, this can be a real game changer for fitters.”

But, what if a customer already has a system in place? “There are still great opportunities available,” says Jamie. “Upgrading or replacing slats improves heat and water retention and maintenance requirements, while giving the pool a clean, fresh and modern look.”

DEL’s slats are fully compatible with most systems. What’s more, they’re resistant to impact, hail and heat and they’re sold with a five-year warranty. Slats are cut to the pool’s dimensions – including roman ends or steps – and are available in a choice of four colours of opaque PVC. For customers looking for solar gains, there are five crystal polycarbonate colour options available.
