In this document we have taken a cost averaging viewpoint to give you an understanding of the financial requirements involved with a swimming pool purchase. The total cost of a in-ground pool can vary from market to market and each pool company will have different installation costs.

Let’s have a look the costs of installation types of in-ground swimming pools such as fiberglass, vinyl liner, and concrete or shortcrete pools. This will provide us a better understanding of what’s a perfect fit for your home and desires.

General Pool Labor Costs 

It’s important to explain; some people prefer the “self-installation” option where the materials are handed to them for the installation. If that’s the way you wish to take your project, please disregard this section as it doesn’t pertain to you or your swimming pool project.

For others who would like professional insights (recommended), it’s easier to start with the basic labor costs before diving into specific pool models.

For the most part, the labor costs are going to settle in the $35-50 hourly rate. Please think about, that these prices are going to vary based on the contractor, and the more prestigious builders that work with the best company products can be as high as $70 per project hour before materials are included.

Always ask about these rates before starting a project with a contractor. It can help expedite the project and your knowledge of what’s being paid for versus what you're expecting.

Expectations From a Pool Quote 

To get a better read on how much each pool install costs, you want to get a better understanding of the general requirements of each project part of the total pool project.

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

Variables May Include:

1) Property dimensions and layout.

2) In-ground pool dimensions.

3) Materials required for the project.

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

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

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

7) Diving boards, jumping rocks, spa jets and other pool add-ons.

8) Safety fencing to help protect your livingspace and meet safety needs.

9) Lighting for safety, security and mood. 

10) Contractors – how many will be in my yard and how does this labor affect the total.

All of these variables, and based on what a property owner requires from the pool installation process, will ultimately determine the total cost. The home owner should always plan on spending more than expected to be on the safe side. Always sit down and communicate with a pool guy to determine how much it’s going to hurt the wallet 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 swimming pool has been completed. 

In-ground Fiberglass Pools

Vinyl Liner Pools

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

The fees associated with a vinyl liner pool are going to settle in of $10,000-$30,000.Vinyl liner pools can be a wonderful choice for home owners wanting something creative.

Custom Concrete Pools

The final option you will have is a concrete swimming pool, and this is the most expensive type of them all. This is going to end up costing in the range $15,000-$40,000 or more... 

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