Pools for sale can be found in a number of different places, on the internet, in your local news paper and or trading post, and even on local post it boards that can be seen in supermarkets and grocery stores. However, the price of an inground pool will vary based on a number of different variable factors. Some of these factors relate to the brand of the pool that you wish to have installed, as well as the size and shape of the pool, and finally the installation costs.
A fairly straight forward installation is going to be cheaper than an installation that has additional obstacles to be overcome like access for earthmoving equipment as well as rocky subsoil that can severely slow the installation process. The good news is that there are inground pool kits that can be purchased and installed by you and your friends and there are also fiberglass inground pools.
Irregularly Shaped Pools
Any pool regardless of whether it is inground or above ground, fiberglass, cement or whatever will cost more if you choose an irregular shape like a bean shaped pool or even a pea pod shaped pool. The style and depth of your pool will also play a big part when determining inground swimming pool prices.
Choice Of Materials For Your Inground Pool
Inground pool prices can be dramatically affected by the choice of materials that you wish to use. Fiberglass is usually more expensive than concrete costing nearly 20 thousand dollars to install. However, fiberglass pools use fewer chemicals than their concrete counterparts and they resist water born algae better. They also require less maintenance than concrete pools and are easier to keep clean.
Additional Expenses And Pool Liner Prices
Any pool other than a fiberglass pool will need a pool liner, therefore it is something that needs to be factored into the cost of your inground pool installation right from the beginning. Some liners can cost more than $1000, while others may cost as little as $100. The life span of the liner is related to the cost and more expensive liners will last longer thus saving you money in the long run.
In-ground pool prices can fluctuate a lot and there are many things that need to be considered. It is worth taking the time to consider everything before purchasing an inground pool, because it is no small investment.
