Wind and Water Loss

Windy days early in the Spring can sometimes be interpreted as a leak in your swimming pool liner.

The Early Bird Catches The POOL!

If you know you want a pool this year, please don't hesitate! Every year shoppers think they can wait until May or June to make that decision.... along with everyone else! We offer special discounts and savings to those who decide early, come see us or call 618-529-3200 for more information. Ask for David, Sonnia, Brandon or Mark! Open Mon - Fri 9-6 Sat 9-5

Swimming pool season is going to BIG, BIG, BIG this year! 

Our installation is list is growing everyday. 

Lots of shoppers and lots of phone calls. 

But then again, there is NOTHING unusual about this! 

For over 37 years, many people begin shopping and purchasing late in February, March and early April for their new swimming pool. 

Why buy "so early"? 

1. It costs less to buy early. As owner's of the business we have bills to pay. When it is cold outside and most people aren't thinking about swimming, prices are lower. (Because we have bills to pay and we are very receptive to offers that pool shoppers make!) When the sun is shining and the temperatures (and humidity) starts to rise... so do the prices! 

In addition: We stock a wide variety of above ground pools, so the selection is great. We also get special discounts for giant shipment of pools we receive. If we have to order a pool for you, it will cost you more. 
We have a super-professional, multi-tasking staff that listens and guides you through the shopping process. Never pushy, always friendly! They will take as long as you need to answer your questions.
When that heat kicks in and everybody is thinking new pool, open pool, new pool liner, etc... It can become like shopping on Christmas Eve at the Mall. We simply can spend the ultimate amount of time with you in March or April! 

2. You will have the longest possible swimming season. Early birds know that being ready early for summer is the wise thing do. In southern Illinois, we can have 90 degree temperature the first week of May. Guess where everybody else is going to be the first week of May if they haven't purchased their pool yet? Purchasing the first week of May can mean your pool won't be installed until the first week of June. 

3. You can prepare the area around your newly installed pool. If you were planning on adding a deck or pouring a patio, you can complete this before it's time to actually start swimming. Wouldn't you rather be swimming instead of working around the pool when things begin to heat up?
You can plan and budget and make better choices when you aren't in a hurry to finish that landscaping or decking. Your yard will look so much better with grass instead of mud around your new pool when those friends come to check out your new awesome pool.

So who's for less stress and not feeling rushed into making a big decision?

Your pool is going to be there for many, many years... hopefully like most of PoolCo customers, for as much as twenty or more years. So why not get the best possible pool at the best possible price?

There are many more plusses for planning and preparing and installing your new pool ahead of EVERYONE ELSE!

Deck builders get backed up too! If you start early, they have more time early in the spring to give you. BTW - anybody that can build a deck or pool for you with just a week wait in May or June, is probably someone you really don't want to do business with!

Having it up and operating a few weeks early doesn't cost but a few dollars more.

When you start early, you also have more time to learn how easy it is to take care of your new pool.

3 STEPS once a week pool care so easy!

You can attend our annual Pool School BEFORE your pool is installed. We can show you the differences in pool care that we offer, so you can make the best decision for you and your family.

Water testing is always FREE at PoolCo in Carbondale.

Our staff is friendly and helpful.
Our staff is knowledgeable.

We are here to help you enjoy the best swimming pool experience possible.

Others promise. We deliver.

Keeping our promises for over 37 years!
