How Much do Above Ground and Inground Swimming Pools Cost?

From River Pools

Making the decision to acquire an inground swimming pool and outdoor living space is one of the most exciting ones in a lifetime.  Once the initial honeymoon period wears off, and the process actually begins, the next question is invariably “What is this going to cost?”  This post from River Pools addresses this issue head on, by takling about the different types of swimming pool construction and their average costs around the country.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

One of the first questions a pool shopper asks themselves when they begin the process of buying a swimming pool is: How much does a pool cost, and what are the expected prices for the different types of swimming pools? Unfortunately, many people run into a road block when they research online as to how much an inground or above ground swimming pool really is going to cost. This article will attempt to answer this important question, but keep in mind that pool prices can vary drastically from region to region.

Above Ground Pools:

There are two pricing components in purchasing an above ground pool, and that is the ‘kit’ and the ‘installation’. Many swimming pool companies only sell above ground pool kits, and do not actually do the pool’s installation. The average above ground swimming pool kit will cost between $1500 and $4500, depending on the quality of the pool. Typically, the more resin and less metal the pool has, the higher the price will be and the longer it will last. The installation costs of above ground pools usually run $1000-$3000, depending on the size and type of pool. Keep in mind that oval pools normally cost more to install than round pools, and the kits are also more expensive.
