There are two types of swimming pools - the above and the in-ground varieties. For the purpose of this discussion, we will look at the costs associated with the installation of both kinds of modern swimming pools.
According to P.K. Data the average cost of a 19' diameter above ground swimming pool is $6,243; while the average cost of a 32'x16' inground swimming pool is $21,919.
Are any of the above ground pools a DIY project? While some manufacturers insist that an experienced homeowner could feasibly build the pool on their own, generally it is advisable to pay a professional to tackle the project. Additionally, the DIY pools will usually only come with a three year warranty or life span which translates to a huge amount of financial commitment for a very short-term feature.
Typical costs and materials necessary to professionally install swimming pools include:
(32' x 16' inground)
Low: $6,200 (above ground 19' diameter)
Medium: $22,000 (32' x 16' inground)
