In this post we have taken a cost averaging methodology to give you an idea of the financial requirements that can occur with a swimming pool purchase. The total cost of a in-ground swimming pool can vary from state to state and each contractor will have different installation costs. This information is to be used as a generic guide for understanding the fess involved with a pool project. 

Let’s have a look the fess 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 good fit for your project and space availability.

General Pool Labor Costs 

It’s important to tell you; some property owners prefer the “self-installation” DIY project where the materials are handed to them for project install. 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 those who require professional help (recommended), it’s better to start with the standard labor costs before diving into specific pool types.

In most circumstances, the labor fees are going to be in the $35-50 an hour range. Please think about, that these prices are going to vary based on the contractor, and the more high end builders that work with the best name brands can be as high as $70 per project hour before materials are accounted for.

Be sure to inquire about these rates before paying a contractor. It can help expedite the project and your understanding of what’s being paid for versus what you're receiving.

Getting a Pool Quote 

To have a better feel for how much each pool type costs, you want to get a complete understanding of the general requirements of each project part of the total swimming pool install.

Remember, no two in-ground pool projects will be exact, 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 known for a swimming pool install?

Variables Include:

1) Backyard dimensions and layout.

2) Swimming pool dimensions.

3) Materials required for the project.

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

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

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

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

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

9) Lighting for security, mood and safety. 

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

Taking into account these variables, and based on what a home owner requires from the pool installation process, will ultimately determine the total bill. The pool purchaser should always plan on spending more than expected to be safe. Always sit down and communicate with a pool guy to determine how much it’s going to run and try to determine any unforeseen design flaws.

If not, the quote could end up being much greater than anticipated due to the additional needs related to the project. These costs are always going to play a higher role on cost once the pool has been finished.
