The coronavirus lockdown and uncertainty over summer holidays has led to a boom in business for the UK residential pool sector. Sussex based Compass Pools reported a 600% increase in orders with ‘swimming pools’ becoming one of the top 10 Googled products in the UK. To meet increased demand the company is now on a recruitment drive, which could also help those that have been made redundant from the travel industry. Compass Pools, who made headlines last year after they designed a one-of-a-kind, death-defying swimming pool that sits 200 metres above London’s skyline, attracted coverage in several leading national newspapers and magazines. “The uncertainty over coronavirus means thousands of British holidaymakers have shelved their foreign holiday plans and are opting to stay in the UK instead,” Alex told them. “We’ve seen a sharp rise in enquiries and orders for home swimming pools as people decide to holiday at home rather than head to the airports. “A home pool can give years and years of pleasure and can also add value to a home so it’s an investment that a growing number of people are choosing to make. We have also had a run of hot weather and that’s helped too.” Alex reveals the increase in business has enabled us to recruit and grow our team, offering positions to many who had lost their jobs in the travel industry.
“Now we are looking to recruit the UK’s first ever dedicated Staycation Designer to help customers plan the perfect pool holiday in the comfort and safety of their own home.”
