The interest and demand for residential pools in Windsor, Ont., is exploding at a jaw-dropping rate.

As reported by CBC Windsor, Meghan Mailloux, co-owner of Paradigm Pools, they are getting “triple” to “quadruple” the number of calls they usually receive.

Mailloux estimated anyone who wants a pool will likely have to wait until 2022 and added the demand for hot tubs is just as high.
