Build Swimming Pool Cost

From Fixr

Building an inground pool can be costly.  There are numerous factors that can drive the cost upward, including:  construction method, materials, features, etc.  One factor that most consumers do not consider is location, or geography.  The region of the country in which one lives can greatly affect the cost of the project, much like the way real estate costs are vastly different in various regions of the U.S.  This post from Fixr not only discusses the expected base costs of different types of pool construction, but it has a handy search tool that will give these costs by zip code or region.

How much does it cost to build a swimming pool?
There are two types of swimming pools - the above and the in-ground varieties. For the purpose of this discussion, we will look at the costs associated with the installation of both kinds of modern swimming pools.

According to P.K. Data the average cost of a 19' diameter above ground swimming pool is $6,243; while the average cost of a 32'x16' inground swimming pool is $21,919.

Are any of the above ground pools a DIY project? While some manufacturers insist that an experienced homeowner could feasibly build the pool on their own, generally it is advisable to pay a professional to tackle the project. Additionally, the DIY pools will usually only come with a three year warranty or life span which translates to a huge amount of financial commitment for a very short-term feature.
