In this document we have taken a cost averaging approach to give you an idea of the costs related to a swimming pool purchase. The total cost of a in-ground swimming pool can vary from city to city and each pool company will have different installation costs. This post is to be used as a generic guide for understanding the fess involved with a pool project. 

Let’s review the fess of installation types of in-ground swimming pools such as vinyl, concrete and fiberglass pools. This will help us with a better understanding of what’s a good fit for your budget and space availability.


General Pool Labor Costs 

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

For others who need professional assistance (recommended), it’s easier to start with the basic labor fees before diving into specific pool models.

For the most part, the labor fees are going to be in the $35-50 an hour range. Please keep in mind, that these prices are going to be different based on the installer, and the more famous builders that use the best brands can be as high as $70 per project hour before materials are considered.

Be sure to ask about their hourly rate before paying a contractor. It can help expedite the process and your expectations of what’s being paid for versus what you're getting.

Expectations From a Pool Quote 

To get a better understanding of how much each pool install costs, you want to get a better understanding of the main requirements of each project part of 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 known for a swimming pool install?

Variables Include:

1) Property dimensions and layout.

2) In-ground pool dimensions.

3) All materials needed for the project.

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

5) Kidney, oval, free-form, rectangle shapes, etc.

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

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

8) Fencing requirements to help protect your livingspace and meet safety needs.

9) Lighting for security, mood and safety. 

10) Contractors – how many will be on site and will their 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 bill. The pool owner should always count on spending more than expected to be safe. Always sit down and speak 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 much greater than anticipated due to the additional needs related to the project. These fees are always going to play a higher role on cost once the in-ground pool has been wrapped up. 

Fiberglass Swimming 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 swimming pools, plan for  a cost somewhere in the range of $15,000-$35,000 (based on size).

Vinyl Swimming Pools

The next type of in-ground swimming pool would be the vinyl liner pool. These are beautiful pools that can provide plenty of years of enjoyment when planned for the right way by pool experts. 

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

Custom Concrete Pools

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

To recap, there are three types of in-ground swimming pools and the expenses for those pool types can differ in many ways. If you're still not quite sure about which pool type to purchase one of our installers can explain the difference in more detail. All three in-ground pool types have their pros and cons, so it's best to look at these advantages along with your budget to determine what is optimal for you in Klagetoh, 86505.
