My Dad was a very frugal man. Another word is cheap. Dude was a serious cheap ass. He did whatever he could to save a buck with DIY (Do it Yourself) projects. That included a Saturday afternoon spent with his 15 year old son putting together a sheet metal storage shed. It took a swear jar full of expletives and some extra sheet metal screws, but we got that son-of-a-bitch together. It didn’t sit exactly straight (only we could notice) and the door never really shut right. But Dad saved a few bucks, and, in retrospect, I spent some priceless quality time with my old man. He passed too soon at 62 years old, but not before paying off the house and leaving Mom a solid retirement nest egg that allowed her the freedom of early retirement. I didn’t truly understand the value of his DIY prowess until I had a house, family and abundance of bills of my own.
I tell this story as the swimming pool industry enters an interesting phase. Certain manufacturers have decided to no longer utilize the internet channel to offer their products. At first thought this is confusing, mostly because since 1995 the internet has grown into a truly worldwide research and shopping resource. To the tune of 55% of the world, roughly 4.2 billion users. While we’re not exactly sure why they would turn their back on the DIY, we are truly thankful for the nine years we have been selling online. We look forward to many more years of helping the DIY community find the right pool products. There are several ways we execute this plan. We offer a very large listing of swimming pool related products and parts, one of the largest in the industry. We also offer expert technical advice to those seeking some valuable DIY assistance. Finally, we’ll get the product shipped out to you the fastest way possible.
We consider ourselves a “virtual retail store” with expert support to help our customers select the correct product at a great price. Instead of feeling sorry for ourselves and whining like a five-year-old, we’re going to get back to work. We will continue to sell parts for all swimming pool products. If the product is no longer available online, we will offer a comparable, often better, replacement item.
Pool Supply Unlimited is an e-commerce company that loves water. We love to pump it, filter it, heat it, chlorinate it, light it up and stare at it while sipping on a cold, frosty adult beverage. There are real pool professionals working here. Our guys have seen thousands of pools in their careers, no exaggeration. We are based in Southern California and can land most products to your door (within the 48 contiguous states) in less than a week.
