How much does a pool cost?

The cost of a swimming pool can vary greater depending on several factors.

(1) The type of swimming pool you want to install

The most important cost factor is the size, depth and features of your swimming pool. Contrary to popular belief the “type of pool” – concrete, fiberglass or vinyl pool does not always determine the swimming pool cost.  It is important to start your process with an “open mind” about your need to have features, as well as pool type.  When you start your research you will be able to compare pool types and options to figure out what works best for you.

(2) The location of your swimming pool

The location of your pool can mean a few things. First is literally the location of you pool in your yard as well as the condition of your yard. Installing a pool requires digging a hole (of course). The easier it is to dig the hole, the less cost. The location can also mean the county where you are located and your distance from the pool professional (or how close you are to other projects).  Talking to 2-3 pool pros will give you an idea of how much location might effect cost.

(3) Your swimming pool research

Picking the right pool requires research and time. Start collecting information from local pool pros who will help you understand what is possible in your backyard and in your range. Like other home projects, every pool project is somewhat unique, you will need some customized information. The pool industry is still local and small. Connecting with the local pros to ask questions & receive information may be challenging and take time.
