How to Build the Cheapest Inground Pool Possible

From Pool Pricer

Not every backyard requires a tropical waterpark treatment.  In fact, the overwhelming majority of backyard swimming pools are fairly basic.  These homeowners know that it doesn’t take an elaborate slide or rock waterfall to have a great time in one’s backyard chilling out in the swimming pool.  This post from Pool Pricer presents some ways to keep the price tag down on your backyard swimming pool.  

Here is an excerpt from the post:

Everyone wants to save money on the things they have to buy. But when it comes to a luxury item – particularly one that will be part of your home for many years – seeking the lowest price isn’t wise if it means sacrificing quality. That’s certainly the case with an inground swimming pool, which is both optional and permanent. If you’re looking for the cheapest inground pool you can find, you might be on a fool’s errand.

That said, there are legitimate ways to keep costs under control while still getting a top-notch addition to your home. The key is to look for the lowest price within the selection of pools that meet your standards. Here are five ways to save money – whether it’s a few hundred dollars or thousands.

1. Choose Vinyl

Vinyl pools are markedly less expensive than either concrete or fiberglass – in terms of initial price tag, anyway. Unlike the other types of pools, vinyl swimming pools require you to replace the liner every so often, at significant expense. The liner is also more liable to get damaged, though most punctures are easy enough to patch. Despite these additional upkeep costs, choosing vinyl will generally save you a lot of money.

2. Go with a Smaller Pool

A small pool means less material, less labor, and less maintenance. In other words, three of the biggest inground pool expenses are reduced simply by installing a more modestly sized swimming pool. Fortunately, there are a lot of small pool designs that are not only economical, but attractive. If space is limited in your yard, you may actually come to appreciate a smaller (and cheaper) swimming pool that doesn’t take up any more space than it has to.
