Using Permit Data to Uncover Swimming Pool Business Opportunities

swimming pool business

What’s fun, healthy, and makes at-home quarantining beyond bearable? A swimming pool! This summer, more than ever before, homeowners are considering residential swimming pool installation.

The swimming pool business goes far beyond digging a hole in someone’s backyard. It is pool supplies, pool maintenance, outdoor furniture, landscaping…and more.

Two months ago, we weren’t sure we’d be in business for our sixtieth year…we’re having a great business season! –Chris, Kennedy Country Gardens

Companies will sink or swim this year. Using permit data for business development can keep your business afloat.

Swimming Pool Businesses Will Make a Big Splash Using Permit Data

At this point, it doesn’t matter where you live in the U.S. Staying safe means staying home and a great way to keep your loved ones home is a swimming pool. Using permit data puts your company in a good position. Here’s how:

A builder/contractor must have a building permit to begin construction of a swimming pool. If you’re a swimming pool maintenance company or a landscaper, it’s easy. Pull last month’s building permit applications.

If you’re a contractor or subcontractor, you need to know about new developments and residential communities in-the-works. Research the top contractors in your area and seek alignment with them. You can do that using permit data.
