When reviewing the latest construction permitting data available from the HBW database, we found approximately 1,850 new swimming pool permits in Florida for the month of August alone.  And while that may be just about on par for new pool construction during the summer months, with monthly totals ranging from 1,820 to 2,110 from May through August, one Florida region has been consistently holding its lead in new pool construction month after month: Southwest Florida
