Labor Expenses for Installing a Pool 

It’s important to note; some people 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 swimming pool project.

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

In general, the labor fees are going to be in the $35-50 per hour. Please keep in mind, that these expenses are going to vary based on the installer, and the more prestigious builders that use the best brands can be as high as $70 per hour before materials are considered.

Be sure to inquire about their hourly rate before paying a contractor. It can help expedite the project and your understanding of what’s being charged to you versus what you're receiving.

General Requirements Before a Quote 

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

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

Variables May Include:

1) Backyard dimensions and layout.

2) In-ground pool dimensions.

3) Materials required for the project.

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

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

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

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

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

9) Lighting for safety, security and mood. 

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

When considering these variables, and based on what a home owner requires from the pool project installation process, will ultimately determine the total cost. The pool purchaser should always count on spending more than planned for to be safe. Always sit down and speak with a pool guy to determine how much it’s going to run and try to determine any unforeseen circumstances.

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 swimming pool has been finished. 

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 pools, you should consider  a cost somewhere in the range of $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 many years of enjoyment when designed the right way by professionals. 

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

Custom Concrete Pools

The last 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 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 your heart’s content as the contractor can build them from the ground up. You will have total control over what can be done with your custom swimming pool.

To reflect, there are three types of swimming pools and the fees for those pool types can differ without proper knowledge. If you're still undecided about which pool type to purchase one of our pool guys can explain the difference between the pool types. All three in-ground pool types have their strengths and weaknesses, so it's best to look at these benefits along with your budget to determine what is best for you in Hubly, 62642.
