Cost Estimate Of A Pool

by Blake
(Kingston)

I am doing a project on inground pools. I am wondering how much a fully heated fully installed with liner pool would be.


Let's say about 1088 sq feet.




Thanks for the question Blake

This is such an open-ended question due to the vast amount of variables a pool owner must consider.

  • Kind of pool
  • Size
  • Permits
  • Area of the country. Place like Arizona have Caliche which is a hardened deposit of calcium carbonate and is similar to cement. It takes more time to dig through this.
  • Underground sewer, electrical, and water lines
  • Type of heating (solar, gas, electricity)
  • Amenities such as a deck, BBQ stand, veranda, etc...

    And much more

    A pool that's 1,088 sq. ft is about 50(L) x 21(W) but this only gives the surface sq. ft.

    The way to calculate the actual surface sq. ft of a pool is:

  • (L x W) + (L x Avg Depth x 2) + (W x shallow depth) + (W x deep depth) = Total square footage of surface of all the pool sides and bottom. This is because many pools have sloping sides and are irregularly shaped.

    The question also doesn't state whether it's an outdoor or indoor pool.

    This question is like asking what's the price of a fully loaded vehicle? There are hundreds of makes and models. We need to get specific.

    I can tell you that most inground outdoor home pools will run between $25,000 - $50,000. This is the base price. Then you'll need to add everything else.

    If you can get more specific it would be easier to answer the question. Really think about what you're looking for, from start to finish.

    What would my cost be?

    by Katilyn Pritchard
    (South Daytona)

    I'm doing a Geometry project and I have to draw a pool and find out how many gallons of water is needed and the price. I have my gallons and I was wondering if you could tell me the cost.

    It will 14,700 gallons.

    What would be the cost?




    Thanks for the question Katilyn

    That's an open ended question because I'm unsure whether you are looking for an inground or above ground pool. They are calculated differently and have different features.

    But I'll give you both prices for a basic pool with a cartridge filter.

    For an inground pool:

    Min. Depth - 3'
    Max. Depth - 8'
    Length - 19'
    Width - 19'

    Estimated Number of Gallons = 14852

    This has a surface area of approx. 779 sq. ft. Normally it's about $50 per sq. ft. This pool would be approx. $39,000.

    For an above ground oval or round pool about 18ft X 33ft x 54in your looking at $3,795.00 for approx 13,959 gallons.

    I hope this has answered your question to your satisfaction.
