Build delay question


Oct 20, 2020
Central NJ
We are in the process of building a vinyl liner pool and the build came to a halt. We have a hole, passed the plumbing inspection, and walls, but the builder says we cannot pour the collar or go any further as they can't get any skimmers. I question it as the builder I am using in NJ also told me they are stretched beyond belief as they only have 4 crews and they have 60 open holes. So it sounds to me more like they over sold and know once the money is mostly paid, you have a hole and walls there is nothing a buyer can do except wait on their crew.

He said Hayward is just resuming production this week. Does anyone know if this is true?

A lot of pools (600,000+) were damaged in that huge Texas freeze and a lot of repairs are going on eating up stock in the warehouses now.

Just another reason things are a mess. :(

I heard anything plastic PVC related is miserable to get. Stairs, skimmers, etc. my PB said his PVC cost went from $8 a pipe to $59. *if* he can get a shipment. And steps/skimmer are nowhere to be found.
