Cost of Installing a Swimming Pool


Adding a swimming pool to your home is a great way to provide summer fun to your family. There are many different kinds of swimming pools available for purchase. Whether you prefer a simple above ground pool that can be taken down once the cold has set, or a more elaborate year-round structure, you are sure to find a pool to suit your needs and budget.

Impermanent Above Ground Pools

  • A simple above ground ring inflated pool can be purchased for under $200. The only installation cost involved is making sure that the ground underneath the pool is perfectly level. Consider purchasing a level, some guide ropes and a few sticks to make sure that the pool sits on an even surface.

Permanent Above Ground Pools

  • Permanent above ground pools be bought for under $300. Installing a permanent above ground pool is generally not complicated. The only additional costs involve making sure the ground underneath the pool is as level as possible.

Above Ground Pools With Decks

  • Some above ground pools can be purchased with a deck addition. The addition allows the user to sit directly next to the pool without going in the water. Most pool manufacturers do not recommend installing a deck without professional help. A professional can be hired for a small fee. Typically installation takes less than half a day and costs about $100.

Standard Inground Pools

  • Inground pools are pools that are installed in the ground. Typically, these pools require holes to be dug in the ground and filled with a dmaterial that will hold water, then adding equipment to filter and clean the water. Inground pools also usually have fences for safety. Installation costs can run from $5,000 and up depending on the type of pool and the area where it is installed.

Upgraded Inground Pools

  • Infinity pools are pools that appear to have only three edges. Slides can be added, as well as realistic boulders and extensive landscaping to create the feel of bathing in a secluded pond. Installation costs for such pools start at $25,000 and up.
