Swimming pool installation and maintenance is causing a sensation earlier this year despite the pandemic, says the owner of a Darien pool company.

Swimming Pools in Darien say business is doing well as more people are stuck at home looking for activities.

They say business was booming for a month earlier this year and phones rang in March.

Owner Mark Swimm says his boys not only have to maintain pools, but they also need to install more pools this season.

Swimm says the construction side of his business is up 20%.

According to Swimm, inflatable pools are a cheaper alternative to installing pools in the ground and above the ground.

Swimm also gives something back to the community.
