Base Fixed Cost

The biggest fixed cost for installing an inground swimming pool is the pool itself. With a size of 16’x30′ with the regular options (includes pump, heater, lights), the pool will cost approximately $60,000 (plus taxes).

Variable Costs

There are plenty of additional features and options associated with the pool build. This includes bubblers, deck jets, laminar deck jets, size and shape of the steps (fiberglass vs. vinyl over steel), and safety cover. Depending on what you pick, these options could add between $10,000-$15,000 to the project.

Note that the shape of the pool you choose will not affect the cost of the build, but the cost of labour may change, especially if you plan on getting stone coping. Stone coping, which is the stone that goes around the pool after the concrete deck or skirt has been poured, will typically add $400/linear ft to the base cost*. Accessibility to your backyard and the type of machines needed will also have an impact on costs.
