The lockdown and uncertainty over summer holidays has led to a boom in business for one UK company with Compass Pools reporting a 600% increase in orders for home swimming pools as millions of us prepare to spend our summer holidays in the UK with ‘Swimming pools’ becoming one of the top 10 Googled products in the UK.

Managing Director and pool designer, Alex Kemsley, says the cost to build a basic home pool starts from £60,000 and they can be installed in as little as 17 days, meaning Brits’ desire to own their very own slice of paradise needn’t only be a pipedream on Pinterest.

He said: “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!”
