General Pool Labor Costs

For those who need professional assistance (recommended), it’s smarter to start with the basic labor fees before diving into specific pool types.
For the most part, the labor expenses are going to settle in the $35-50 an hour range. Please note, that these expenses are going to be different based on the contractor, and the more famous builders that use the best company products can be as high as $70 per hour before materials are accounted for.
Be sure to ask about their hourly rate before beginning a project with a contractor. It can help expedite the project and your expectations of what’s being paid for versus what you're getting.
Getting a Pool Quote
To have a better read on how much each pool type costs, you want to get a better understanding of the primary requirements of each project associated to the total swimming pool install.
Remember, no two pool projects will be the same, and most have to take into account the space they have to work with and the total requirements of the project. So, what are some of the variables that need to be known for a in-ground pool project?
Variables Should 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) 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 livingspace and meet safety requirements.
9) Lighting for security, mood and safety.
10) Contractors – how many will be on site and will their labor affect the total.
All of these variables, and based on what a home owner requires from the pool installation process, will ultimately determine the total expense. The pool purchaser should always plan on spending more than expected to be on the safe side. Always sit down and talk 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 higher role on cost once the in-ground pool has been wrapped up.
