General Pool Labor Costs 

It’s important to note; some home owners prefer the “self-installation” package where the materials are handed to them for pool installation. If that’s the way you wish to take your pool plan, please don't pay attention this section as it doesn’t pertain to you or your total pool project expenses.

For those of you who need professional help (recommended), it’s better to start with the standard labor costs before diving into specific pool types.

In general, the labor costs are going to settle in the $35-50 per hour. Please think about, that these expenses are going to be different based on the installer, and the more prestigious builders that use the best name brands can be as high as $70 per hour before materials are considered.

Always ask about these rates before paying a contractor. It can help expedite the process and your understanding of what’s being paid for versus what you're getting.

Expectations From a Pool Quote 

To have a better read on how much each pool install costs, you want to get a better understanding of the main requirements of each project attached to the total pool 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 considered for a pool install?

Variables Include:

1) Backyard dimensions and layout.

2) In-ground pool dimensions.

3) Materials required for the project.

4) Safety measures – 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, swim jets and other pool accessories.

8) Fencing for safety to help protect your pool and meet safety requirements.

9) Lighting for security, mood and safety. 

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

All of these variables, and based on what a property owner requires from the swimming pool installation process, will ultimately determine the total bill. The pool purchaser should always count on spending more than planned for to be safe. 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 issues.

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