If you want to buy a car, you go to a reputable car dealer, right? You get the guarantee of knowing there’s a professional who is selling you the best product and will be there for you to maintain the vehicle in the future.
Then why are people buying hot tubs and above ground pools from supermarkets?
We all love to get a bargain nowadays, there’s nothing better than spotting that item you’ve wanted for a while on sale. Sometimes though, sales aren’t all they seem to be. We’ve all seen some of the retail disasters of people buying wedding dresses from eBay stores in China and receiving nothing like the pictures and it’s never nice.
The truth is, bargains aren’t always the bargains they seem to be.
False economy is a real thing. Those kitchen towels you buy for 50p? You’ll need 10 of them to do the job. That cheap tin foil? It’ll rip. In the words of Stella Artois, some things are reassuringly expensive.
Over the last few months, we’ve had a number of customers come to us to get spares and repairs for above ground pools they’ve purchased on the cheap, often from supposed reputable retailers, that haven’t stood the test of a few months, let alone a few seasons. They just haven’t had the advice and support you need when looking after a purchase such as this.
But it’s just a bargain, right? What are the downsides?
Well, as mentioned it’s often a false economy. Buying the hot tub or the pool is just the first part step of the ownership process. You have to think about on going maintenance and the products required for the upkeep of the water – a vital part of making sure the hot tub or pool is healthy for you to use.
