Labor Costs Associated With a Pool 

It’s important to tell you; some home owners prefer the “self-installation” DIY project where the materials are handed to them for project install. If that’s a route you wish to take your project, please don't pay attention this section as it doesn’t pertain to you or your swimming pool project.

For those of you who require professional insights (recommended), it’s better to start with the basic labor expenses before diving into specific pool manufacturers.

For the most part, the labor fees are going to settle in the $35-50 an hour range. Please note, that these prices are going to vary based on the installer, and the more prestigious builders that carry the best brands can be as high as $70 per hour or more before materials are included.

Always ask about their rates before paying a contractor. It can help expedite the project and your expectations of what’s being charged to you versus what you're getting.

Expectations From a Pool Quote 

To get a better feel for how much each pool type costs, you want to get a better understanding of the primary requirements of each project part of the total swimming pool install.

Remember, no two pool projects will be exact, and most have to take into account the space available and the total requirements of the total livingspace needs. 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) Swimming pool dimensions.

3) All materials needed for the project.

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

5) Free-form, rectangle, custom shapes, etc.

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

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

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

9) Lighting for mood, safety and security. 

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

Taking into account these variables, and based on what a home owner requires from the pool project installation process, will ultimately determine the total cost. The home owner should always count on spending more than expected to be safe. Always sit down and speak with a contractor to determine how much it’s going to hurt the wallet and try to determine any unforeseen design flaws.

If not, the quote could end up being far greater than anticipated due to the additional needs related to the project. These costs are always going to play a greater role on cost once the in-ground pool has been finished.
