We asked for it very often, so we did some research through the industry associations and we also asked Fluidra, the Spanish multinational, leader of the swimming pools and wellness market in Europe. Thanks to their answers, we managed to compose a puzzle but unfortunately many pieces are still missing. For example, nobody has been able to tell us how many private pools are in China, South Africa, Canada or Mexico (or in many other countries in the world). So our global search continues. Indeed, if someone has useful information, share it with us writing to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Here are the data collected so far:
Czech Republic: 100,000
United States: 5,400,000
Estimated existing swimming pools in the world: 22,000,000.
