If you're considering having a in-ground pool installed you should consider all the expenses that can happen with pool projects before making an investment in a pool project. In this document we have taken a cost averaging methodology to give you an understanding of the financial requirements involved with a pool project. The total cost of a in-ground pool can vary from state to state and each pool company will have different expenses. This information is to be used as a basic guide for understanding the fess involved with a pool install. 

Let’s review the fess of installation types of in-ground swimming pools such as concrete, fiberglass and vinyl liner pools. This will help us with a better idea of what’s a perfect fit for your home and desires.


General Pool Labor Costs 

It’s important to tell you; some property owners prefer the “self-installation” option where the swimming pool is handed to them for pool installation. If that’s the way you wish to take your project, please don't pay attention this section as it doesn’t pertain to you or your swimming pool project.

For those who require professional insights (recommended), it’s easier to start with the standard labor expenses before diving into specific pool manufacturers.

In most circumstances, the labor fees are going to settle in the $35-50 an hour range. Please note, that these prices are going to vary based on the installer, and the more famous builders that use the best company products can be as high as $70 per project hour before materials are accounted for.

Always ask about their hourly rate before beginning a project with a contractor. It can help expedite the project and your knowledge of what’s being paid for versus what you're getting.

Expectations From a Pool Quote 

To have a better understanding of how much each pool install costs, you want to get a complete understanding of the general requirements of each project associated to the total pool installation project.

Remember, no two swimming pool projects will be alike, and most have to take into account the space available and the total requirements of the project. So, what are some of the variables that need to be thought about for a in-ground pool project?

Variables Should Include:

1) Backyard dimensions and layout.

2) Pool dimensions.

3) All materials needed for the project.

4) Safety requirements – hand railings, proper markings, swimming pool covers, etc.

5) Free-form, rectangle, custom shapes, etc.

6) Depth of swimming pool – shallow, deep and mid pool height levels.

7) Diving boards, jumping rocks, spa jets and other pool features.

8) Safety fencing to help protect your investment and meet safety standards.

9) Lighting for mood, safety and security. 

10) Contractors – how many will be on the project and how does this labor affect the total.

When considering these variables, and based on what a person requires from the swimming pool installation process, will ultimately determine the total cost. The pool owner should always plan for spending more than planned for to be safe. Always sit down and talk with a pool guy to determine how much it’s going to run and try to determine any unforeseen circumstances.

If not, the quote could end up being far greater than anticipated due to the additional needs you may have. These expenses are always going to play a higher role on cost once the in-ground pool has been completed. 

Fiberglass Pools

Now, that we have talked about the variables that should be considered, let’s focus the specific types of pools available to consumers.

With fiberglass pools, you’re looking at  a cost near $15,000-$35,000 (based on size).

Vinyl Swimming Pools

The next type of in-ground pool would be the vinyl liner pool. These are gorgeous pools that can provide plenty of years of enjoyment when designed the right way by pool installers. 

The expenses associated with a vinyl pool are going to settle in the range of $10,000-$30,000.Vinyl liner pools can be a wonderful choice for property owners wanting something robust and unique.

Concrete (Shotcrete) Pools

The third option a person will have is a concrete in-ground swimming pool, and this is the most expensive type of pool. This is going to end up costing somewhere in the neighborhood of $15,000-$40,000 or more... 

With concrete pools it’s important to note they can be customized to as much as you want as the contractor can construct them from the ground up. You will have total control over what can be done with your custom swimming pool.

To recap, there are three types of swimming pools and the fees for those pool types can differ without proper knowledge. If you're still unsure about which pool type to purchase one of our pool guys can explain the difference and why. All three in-ground pool types have their strengths and weaknesses, so it's best to look at these advantages along with your budget to determine what is best for you in Victoria, 77902.
