What Does Your Pool Installation Include?

by Mona
(Michigan)

I see the approx price of a cement vinyl lined 20x40 pool is 22,000. Is that "everything" I need or could you tell me what that price includes...installation, permits, digging hole etc.


I am very interested in getting the ball rolling on a pool but want to know what I am looking at for an expense. I want to know if the estimated price is what I'm looking at or is it going to be $1000.00's above the estimated price.




Thanks for the question Mona

The $22,000 is just for the installation of the pool. This would include digging the hole, parts and labor.

This is a general figure from the last 10 years of pool prices. But is does depend on factors such as time of year, part of the country, landscaping (either adding or removing) water, sewer, and electrical lines, kind of decking you want, decorative rocks, water falls, etc...

You're probably going to need a heater in Michigan. These amenities will cause the price to rise. A pool in Arizona might be cheaper than a comparable pool in Michigan simply because of competition. Pool companies in the southwest and place like Florida are always bidding for your business and the competition is sometimes very fierce.

This will cause the prices to stay reasonable because you can always call someone else. Other parts of the country may not have the same luxury.

The pages above go into a little more detail on what you may expect to pay for a pool. Again, these figures are just guidelines. On the Cost of Swimming Pool page, on the bottom, it says "A very rough price for the cost of swimming pools". They're meant to be approximate.

Yes, you can get a nice pool for around $25,000, but add in all the good stuff, and the price will go up. The $22,000 is just a starting point. Hope this helps and have a great Summer.
