Will Above Ground Pools Come Back in Stock?

Post by Nearly A Moose » Mon May 18, 2020 8:25 pm

When our young kids' summer camp got canceled, we decided to go buy a small, non-permanent above ground pool (think 8' x 4', 2' deep, metal framing with a soft plastic liner) for our kids to play in. Think something between a blow up pool and a metal-sided permanent one. And we were about a week late. Everything's out of stock. On the off chance there is a Boglehead out there who understands the supply chain for these pools, are these likely to be resupplied in the next month or so? Or is this more of a situation where there's one megafactory in China that makes them all and its shut down now?
Pardon typos, I'm probably using my fat thumbs on a tiny phone.

No idea how good, but Amazon has above ground pools in stock. Here is a 10 ft diameter, 30" deep pool, with recirc filter, for $208.
