In this document we have taken a cost averaging approach to give you an understanding of the costs involved with a pool project. The total cost of a pool can vary from market to market and each installer will have different installation costs. This information is to be used as a basic guide for understanding the expenses involved with a pool install. 

Let’s take a look at the costs of installation types of in-ground swimming pools such as concrete, fiberglass and vinyl liner pools. This will provide us a better idea of what’s a perfect fit for your home and space availability.

Labor Costs Associated With a Pool 

It’s important to tell you; some property owners prefer the “self-installation” DIY project where the pool is handed to them for project install. If that’s the way you wish to take your pool plan, please ignore this section as it doesn’t pertain to you or your total pool project expenses.

For those who require professional assistance (recommended), it’s smarter to start with the basic labor expenses before diving into specific pool types.

In general, the labor fees are going to be in the $35-50 per hour. Please think about, that these prices are going to vary based on the pool company, and the more famous builders that work with the best name brands can be as high as $70 per project hour before materials are considered.

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

Expectations From a Pool Quote 

To have a better feel for how much each pool install costs, you want to get a good understanding of the general requirements of each project part of 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 considered for a in-ground pool project?

Variables Include:

1) Available space dimensions and layout.

2) In-ground pool dimensions.

3) Materials being used for the project.

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

5) Custom shapes, free form, rectangular, oval, kidney, etc.

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

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

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

9) Lighting for security, mood and safety. 

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

these variables, and based on what a home owner requires from the pool project installation process, will ultimately determine the total expense. The pool purchaser should always count on spending more than anticipated to be on the safe side. Always sit down and speak with a installer to determine how much it’s going to cost 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 your project might have. These fees are always going to play a greater role on cost once the swimming pool has been completed. 

Fiberglass Swimming Pools

Now, that we have considered the variables that should be considered, let’s focus the specific types of pools available on the market.

With fiberglass pools, you should consider  a cost of roughly $15,000-$35,000 (based on size).

Vinyl Swimming Pools

The next type of pool would be the vinyl liner pool. These are gorgeous pools that can provide years of enjoyment when planned for the right way by pool installers. 

The expenses associated with a vinyl in-ground pool are going to settle in the area of $10,000-$30,000.Vinyl liner pools can be a great choice for property owners wanting something more custom in a pool.

Custom Concrete Pools

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

With concrete in-ground pools it’s important to keep in mind they can be customized to your heart’s content 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.

To recap, there are three types of pools and the costs for those pool types can differ in many ways.
