What Installing a Pool Will Cost

A new pool can transform even the most mundane backyard into your own private oasis. A new pool can provide endless entertainment. From summer barbecues and parties to a winter's soak in the hot tub, they really do provide fun all year long. If you are interested in installing a pool in your backyard, it's important to know how much money it is going to cost. Even the least expensive pool will cost you $15,000, and anything extra you want to add will only increase the price. Want to know more about the cost of installing a pool? Here is a brief explanation that will help you plan your future pool.
The Cost of a Pool
1. The most basic is a square or round that is about 30 feet across and three to five feet deep. A pool of this size is going to cost at least $15,000 to $20,000 to install. There is no way you can cut costs or expenses when you want to install a pool, so if you can't spend at least that much, a pool might be out of your reach.
2. Adjusting the shape will dramatically increase the total cost. Freeform pools require a lot more work and planning to properly install. The usual square pools with flat edges and sharp corners are relatively easy for a pool builder in Fort Worth like Klapprodt Pools to install. But when you begin adding unusual shapes and corners the amount of work involved skyrockets. Because of that, you can expect to add at least 10-20% of your pool's total value if you want to create one that is freeform.
3. Depth will increase a its value more than just about anything else you can do. Digging a deep pool requires plenty of planning, city approval, and a lot more work. If you want a 10-foot-deep section in your pool for diving, expect to add 25% or more to a standard pool's price. It's easy to spend more than $50,000 on a decent diving pool.
4. If you own a pool, you are likely going to want to add accessories and other features. These features can increase your its cost dramatically, but individually some are inexpensive. An electronic cover, for example, can cost up to $10,000. But colored lights and decorative tiling on the bottom can cost as little as $1,000. If you have extra money to make your pool unique, make sure you prioritize what you really want, as features can become incredibly expensive (if you want a miniature volcano and waterfall, for example, you can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars).
5. Pool maintenance and operational costs will range from $500 to $2,000 a year, depending on how large your pool is and what features you have. Expect to pay $10,000 every 10-20 years to resurface and seal your pool, replace the heater and pumps, and install a new cover.
