The swimming pool is a facility which is generally of great pleasure. Swimming is often thought of as a refreshing distraction, especially in the hottest parts of the year. Having a residential swimming pool is, therefore, the wish of many people. But it comes at a cost. Here’s how much it would cost to install a residential swimming pool.

What to consider when evaluating the cost of installing a residential swimming pool?

Different elements must be taken into account when evaluating the cost of installing a residential swimming pool. It’s about the type of pool you want and the customization you want. Indeed, there are several types of swimming pools: in-ground swimming pools, above ground swimming pools, and overflow swimming pools. For each type, there is a net purchase price, a price related to labor (very variable) and choice, a price for customization (heater, etc.). These are all elements to consider when evaluating the installation of a residential swimming pool.

Residential swimming pool installation cost by type of pool

Find out the cost of installing the three main types of residential swimming pools here.

Inground pools

The cost of installing an in-ground swimming pool varies between € 10,000 and € 30,000. In addition, you can opt for a custom-made swimming pool or for an in-ground kit swimming pool. The last option is less expensive with a price varying from € 5,000 to € 14,000. Custom-made in-ground pools can be shell or concrete. The hull cost between € 10,000 and € 15,000 while those built-in concrete cost between € 15,000 and € 35,000. There is another possibility to reduce costs. It is to choose a semi-inground swimming pool made of wood or steel, the price of which without installation can cost you up to €3,000.

Above ground pools

Above ground pools are less expensive than inground pools. They do not require major improvements or digging a pit. This is already reducing costs quite a bit. Above ground swimming pools exist in “freestanding” or “rigid”. The freestanding model is relatively cheaper and does not require installation costs. Its price varies between 150 € and 1,500 €. The rigid above-ground pool is more resistant than the free-standing. This is thanks to its shell made up of rigid walls. Its price varies between 1,500 € and 8,000 € with installation. However, they can be installed without a craftsman.

Infinity pools

These are high-end swimming pool models. In this way, the cost of their installations is much higher than that of other types of swimming pools. There are two kinds of infinity pools: the mirror infinity pool and the waterfall infinity pool. The cost of supplying and installing the mirror infinity pool varies between € 10,000 and € 40,000. That of the cascade infinity pool varies between € 12,000 and € 50,000.

Knowing the benefits of these different types of residential swimming pools will help you better choose the right one for you.

This assessment of the cost of installing a residential swimming pool does not include electrification, earthworks, or other work which is generally left to the owner’s charge.
