NORTH SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Memorial Day weekend brought big business to pool stores around Central New York as people look to beat the heat this summer season.
Most pool distributors in New York State say above-ground pools continue to be more popular because of the short season. They are also a less expensive than in-ground pools.
As for the new models, manufacturers continue to add new features to traditional pools to make them attractive.
"This year we've introduced the S Pool to our above-ground pool line. This is a combination of an aluminum wall and resin top rails as well as LED lit uprights, which has been very well received and new for the industry," said Jeffrey LeMon, Vice President of Sales for Cannon Pools.
Distributors suggest talking to an expert for some tips before opening up your pool.
