In-ground fiberglass swimming pools - How much do they cost?
In this video we're going to answer that question. How much do fiberglass pools cost?
One of the first questions dealers are commonly asked, is what's the price of a fiberglass pool?
It makes sense that cost would be the first question that comes to mind as you begin the pool buying process. Like purchasing a car, you want to know what you’re getting, and how much it’s going to cost.
There isn’t much out there describing the costs of fiberglass pools, and that’s because there are many variables that change from project to project, and from one location to another. Often there are unforeseeable issues that occur, which is why it’s best to have a good, and reputable pool company install your swimming pool.
But we understand. The cost of a pool matters. So, let’s discuss some basic estimates, and price ranges. Please note that final costs can change dramatically, from one manufacturer to another, and from one installer to another.
In general, most fiberglass pool projects cost between $45,000 and $85,000. This usually includes concrete or paver patios, standard pool operating equipment, and basic accessories. As with any swimming pool installation project, these costs can increase drastically when you add other outdoor living features, like water falls, stone hardscaping, lighting, salt water systems, and so on.
A general guideline can be used for the cost of a pool shell. A small pool shell, 26 feet or less, is roughly between $12,000 and $16,000. A medium shell, between 27 and 34 feet, is in the range of $15,000 to $20,000. A large shell, 35 foot or longer, is in the range of $18,000 to $30,000. And a fiberglass spa is in the range of $4,000 to $7,000.
Now a basic installation package. If there were such a thing as a “basic” installation package, it might include things as the fiberglass pool shell, the shipping of that shell, excavation, backfill, the pool collar, usually 3' of concrete around the pool, a pump filter system, the electrical components for the pool, and the filling of the pool with water. Most basic pool packages don't include premium outdoor living options, such as a fire feature, patios, pergolas, bars, kitchens, etc. Typical price range for a basic pool package is in the range of $35,000 to $50,000 when all is said and done.
Now if you were to go with a basic install like we just discussed, and throw in some paverscapes, some more custom options if you will, such as a paverscaped patio or seating area with a firepit, the typical price range of a project of that nature would be in the $45,000 to $60,000 range.
So in conclusion, the cost estimates we've discussed in this video, are for general purposes, and are meant as a guideline to help you during your pool shopping experience. You may notice that costs may vary significantly from one dealer to another, so it will be important to check reputations, and all the information that might be available to you online.
Thanks for watching the video, and we hope that you get into a pool soon.
