In 2021 the pool industry has experienced unprecedented demand and slow production of fiberglass pools due to the worldwide resin shortage.
This hasn’t just affected the pool industry. It has affected the boating industry, the automotive industry, and many consumer goods industries worldwide. Since most of America’s swimming pool resin comes out of Texas, The Great Freeze affected Blue Hawaiian Pools of Michigan significantly.
In 2021, the Texas Freeze wiped out a large portion of the resin capacity for the United States. It had taken a long time to recover from that loss. Consequently, this loss affected the ability of our vendor, Latham Pools, to build their fiberglass pool shells.
Latham, the largest manufacturer of fiberglass pools, has been diligent to complete your swimming pool as soon as possible. BHP has been looking into every supply option to help increase their resin stocks so we can produce swimming pools faster and bring you your Backyard Paradise quicker.
Latham has also been working on increasing capacity at their eight facilities around the country to allow us to get shells quicker and bring them to you faster.
The Good News
We estimate 2022 will be a banner year for installations and we are doubling our logistical efforts to make sure carry-over pool installations are first, along with new contracts we have secured for the 2022 Pool Building Season.
While we can’t always guarantee a delivery date, we promise Blue Hawaiian Pools will be the first pools produced as soon resin levels are back to normal. Please be patient when staying in contact with your salesperson, and they will give you as much up-to-date information as they know.
Blue Hawaiian Pools of Michigan thanks you for your patience, and we apologize for the setbacks you’ve experienced because of this shortage. We promise we will get yoour Backyard Paradise experience as soon as possible.
