How Much Does A Pool Cost?

How Much Can A Swimming Pool Cost

It’s one of the first questions everyone ponders when they consider buying a pool, how much does it cost? Many people believe that a swimming pool is beyond their financial reach, but just like buying a car, prices can vary. An entry-level pool can cost as little as $16,000.

You’ll find that the larger the pool, the more add-ons you require and the more complicated the installation then costs will increase.

What Factors Influence Cost?

Fibreglass pools are the most popular pools on the market; they’re highly durable and cost around 20% less than a concrete pool to install. Here are a few points to consider ahead of your purchase:

Ground conditions. What is the soil like in your back yard, how easy would it be to install that pool, taking into account any sloping ground?

Access to pool. Is it relatively easy for contractors to get to your backyard to commence work, is there side access or can they get through a garage?

Size and style. What shape works best for you, and what size is your preferred choice?

Quality of product. Do you have preference over the type of shell material, are you looking for superior quality or just a basic mould?

Pool features. Once your pool is installed, will you need to lay more patio, increase lighting or install water features?

Additional extras. Will you want to enhance your pool with additions such as Solar Heating or circulation and cleaning mechanisms?

Generally speaking, having your pool supplied and installed by a licensed pool builder is a much easier, safer and ultimately more cost-effective option. When you are being offered quotes make sure they are like for like. Investigate its features, operating system and warranties and customer care.

Installation Of Pool

The installation time for a fibreglass pool is pretty rapid and can take just a week. Once it is installed there is very little ongoing maintenance required to ensure it looks great.

You’ll need to keep tabs to ensure the water is filtered correctly, with correct PH and chlorine levels which will also present algae growth. The gelcoat surface of a fibreglass pool is smooth, which means it stays clean reasonably easily.

Selling Your Home

When considering your outlay, many people want to know if it will add value if they decide to resell the property on and whether there’ll benefit from that investment.

It’s always a difficult one to answer, but families with children are usually drawn to swimming pools. When choosing the style and size, it’s worth considering which pool will add appeal to your home when the times comes to sell.
