Johnson Pools & Spas in Huntsville is seeing a big splash in pool sales. They say they believe it's because many people aren't travelling during the pandemic and want something they can enjoy at home.

They say they're selling more above ground pools than they have in years. Even though the demand is there, production of above ground pools has taken a hit.

Tommy Johnson, Johnson Pools & Spas Owner said, "A lot of the production of the above ground pool market comes out of Canada, and not being able to import product from Canada is where it's actually slowed that process down."
