COVID-19 caused a major trend for backyard pools and construction, the national pool service franchise used that growth to gain momentum for the brand throughout 2022.

Throughout the height of the pandemic, many families turned to swimming as a form of

stay-at-home entertainment. This trend led to a massive growth of 20% in pool ownership and construction throughout the country just between 2019 and 2020. Recent data estimates an increase of over 500% in backyard pools in recent years. For companies like Pool Scouts, the 110-plus-territory pool maintenance and cleaning franchise, this trend has drastically impacted the pool services industry.
