Most pools in the U.S. are concentrated in the southern and westernmost regions. Due to its relatively modest overall population compared to Los Angeles, Phoenix tops the list, with 32.7% of all homes featuring a pool. Florida sweeps the next three spots, with Miami at 30.6%, Tampa at 27.7% and Orlando at 25.9%.

Rounding out the rankings are Las Vegas at 23.8%, followed by a number of California spots: Los Angeles (19%), Riverside (18.3%), San Diego (17%) and Sacramento (14%). Dallas takes the No. 10 spot, with 13.8% of homes featuring pools.

These numbers have risen over the past year or so, in part due to the pandemic. Homebound consumers started investing in their backyards to increase the entertainment capacity of their homes, and demand for pool installations skyrocketed. In fact, Fixr notes, according to a Renofi analysis of Google searches concerning home improvement trends influenced by the pandemic, the phrase “Pool Installation” saw a 49% increase across the U.S. compared to the year prior.
