Cost Of Indoor Pool?

On average, how much does a indoor pool cost?


Thanks for your question

The question didn't mention whether for a residential or commercial pool, but I will assume this is for a residential indoor swimming pool.

Swimming pool prices will vary greatly depending on what you choose for materials. You might expect to pay around the same for a regular outdoor inground swimming pool, anywhere between $15,000 - $25,000. That's on the low end because there are many things to consider such as heat and exhaust.

You may want to shop around and get multiple bids from experienced swimming pool installers. Get everything in writing and take your time.

Swimming Pool In 1st Floor

by Phani
(Kadapa)

I am planning to construct a swimming pool in my house but in 1st floor. I need your suggestions about this.




Thanks for the question Phani

Much of the information you need can be found on the indoor pool page:

Indoor Swimming Pools

You need to be concerned about dehumidification, fresh air ducts, exhaust, heating, vapor barrier, to name a few.

I'm wondering what exactly you're looking for? The question states that you want my suggestions on having an indoor pool. If you can afford it and know how to take care of it, all of the processes and procedures on having a pool, then go for it.

Have you talked to a contractor yet? If so, what have they said? What kind of pool are you looking at; plaster, vinyl, or fiberglass? How big will it be? What kind of filtration are you considering? Do you understand water chemistry and how to balance pool chemicals?

Without a little more detail I really can't say with any degree of certainty what you need or want and what your budget is.

If you could email back with more details I'm sure I can help.

Cost of Maintaining an Indoor Swimming Pool in Western New York

by Amie
(South of Buffalo, NY)


We are very interested in this home and would like to know an approx annual cost of pool/pool room maintenance/ownership. The original owners no longer own the home and the current owner did not live in the home.

I can't seem to find a chart on the web anywhere.

I know the pool room is 27x48 feet. I do not know the size of the actual pool yet or what type of filtration/dehumidication/heating systems are in the space. I will get that information tomorrow.




Thanks for the question Amie

Indoor pools are actually easier to take care of and are chemically less expensive than an outdoor pool.

There's no worry about the heat, acid rain, organic matter in the pool (grass clippings, dead leaves, animals, etc...) It's in a very controlled environment.

For a regular pool with regular use (say a family a four that uses it 3 Xs per week) your chemical use should be about $15 per month. Not much labor because no shouldn't be much dirt in the pool. No windstorms equals less dirt.

Consider the back washing as well. Less dirt means the filter won't get as dirty. You'll save on the water bill as well. How much?

A gallon of water is about 2 cents. Let's use regular tap water as your fill water.

200 gallons per back wash, once per month, would equal $4 per month. Add on another $1 for splash out, that's $5.

5 X 12 months = $60 per year, just for back washing. With an indoor pool you can probably 1/2 that.

Here's a good post about heating an indoor pool:

Pool Question..Indoor Heater

Remember that an having an indoor pool, although pretty cool, does come with a price, if you're not careful. This has to do with dehumidification, fresh air flow, and exhaust. These are crucial because if you don't have them you're going to have a huge problem later on.

The above link goes into much detail about that, along with this page:

Indoor Swimming Pools


This one about a pool heater:

I Have A Hayward Electric Heater..What Size New Heater Do I Need?

Due to different electrical and gas rates through the country, it would be hard to give you an exact number for heating the pool room and the pool.

Running the pool motor:

For a 12 hour day, for a month, at $.10 per kilowatt hour, is $1.45.

If you run the filter for 6 - 8 hours per day at this rate, you're looking at around 70 cents per day.

So, a rough monthly estimate:

Chemicals - $15

Electricity - $20 (pump motor)

Water - $30

Gas/Electricity to heat the pool - $30

Gas/Electricity for fresh air/exhaust/dehumidification - $30

Total monthly cost - $125

Total yearly cost - $1500

These numbers are not exact and can change due to your comfort level, size of the room, insulation, weather, etc... If you like the room or pool a bit warmer, you're going to use more gas and/or electricity.

Also take into consideration if there's an exhaust problem. Condensation can build up quickly and cause mold in places that you didn't even knew existed. This will be another added expense.
