If you're in need a new pool liner, cleaners, covers, chemicals, pool toys or any other pool supplies, you already know how limited your options are. Most local stores have a very limited selection of pool supplies in stock. What they do have is usually priced with high markups.

Online swimming pool supply stores, however, can carry a much larger selection of pool supplies than a traditional store. Online stores are available all year round, usually at prices that can't be beat by local swimming pool supply stores. This is because online pool supply stores typically have fewer staff and less overhead - and they usually pass that savings on directly to you, their customer.

POOLS ETC

Visit Site

Shipping:

Free with an $8.95 handling fee

Pools Etc started over 20 years ago in Massachusetts as a retail store front. Overtime the business evolved to the Internet to provide online shoppers a full service website for their pool supply needs.

The website is packed full of pool supplies such as pool fencing, lighting, toys, covers, chemicals and more. We couldn't think of anything they didn't offer at least one product for. With the current lay out at Pools Inc you can anticipate some additional effort required to find what need. The website allows you to either narrow your search by choosing from supplies, chemicals, liners, equipment, kits, parts and more.

You may also spend time searching through a long list of product categories that vary between wide and narrow searches. The results then require you to drill down more specifically to find the individual products for sale. We thought Pools Etc would be a good resource to compare prices if you knew exactly what you needed.

Should you not be happy with your purchase, Pools Etc accepts returns within 30 days with some conditions and exclusions. The product must be returned in the original box - please see the specific policy to understand how it applies to your purchase.

Pools Etc has a selection of pool supplies that almost seems endless. Unfortunately a lack of savvy website functionality prohibits consumers from finding those products as streamlined as other companies. But with free shipping it's worth comparing prices to see if they have a better price or a product in stock that someone else might be out of. Either way, Pools Etc is worth your time for your pool supplies needs.

Starts at $9.99

Relatively new to the world of online pool supply retailers, Your Pool HQ offers a long list of pool supplies including diving boards, filters, motors, cleaners, floats and more. With Your Pool HQ being located in the Midwest we anticipated a website and shopping experience that was very customer friendly - we didn't find that.

At Your Pool HQ we ran into another company that challenged our patience. The search functionality was limited and required we do much of the work. We could only narrow our search down by pool or spa supply and then further by searching through nearly 30 categories to find the product we were looking for. Unfortunately this didn't meet our expectations.

On the products we compare we found their prices to be slightly more expensive than many other stores. We also noted they had no stated business hours and we were required to leave a voicemail the two times we attempted to contact them. We noticed at check out no handling fee but a shipping fee of $9.95 for a light weight $3.95 item.

Your Pool HQ offers the standard 30 day return policy that most companies provides and doesn't allow for returns on liners, replacement parts, pool chemicals, heaters and more.

Your Pool HQ misses the mark on website functionality, shipping costs on low priced items, customer contact information and more. If you are looking for a strong pool supply website we recommend you shop a company that has been in business longer.

Continued from above

While online swimming pool supply stores provide a convenient option for those looking for pool supplies, not all online pool stores are alike. Before making your next pool supplies purchase, consider the following:

  • Selection. You'll want to shop a company that provides a large selection of pool supply products. How vast and diverse is the selection of pool supplies at the company you're considering?
  • Prices. Making sure you don't overspend on your pool supplies is important. How do the prices at each pool supply company compare?
  • Return policy. If you aren't satisfied with the pool supplies once you receive them, are you able to make a return for a full refund? Are there any limitations?
