The cost of building a new swimming pool can range anywhere from $10,000 to upwards of $100,000 by the time you have factored in all the costs included.
The cost is dependent on what kind of pool you choose, how complex the installation will be and a variety of other factors:
Fibreglass pools are a precast mould that is placed into a hole. They’re available in a range of sizes, are quick to install and cheaper than concrete pools. You can generally install a fibreglass pool for between $20,000 and $40,000.
Concrete pools are more expensive, but also more flexible in terms of shape and size. They take longer to build and can crack but due to the flexible nature in terms of shape and size they are still one of the most popular options. Building a new swimming pool in concrete will cost approximately $30,000, with an average price point of $50,000.
Plunge pools are small, specialised pools that are prefabricated and perfect for small spaces. Due to their depth, they’re not particularly suitable for families with small children. Their price point ranges from $8,000 and $15,000 approximately.
Above ground pools are the cheapest of the options and use a vinyl liner to line the pool. The initial cost is generally under $10,000 but the liner does have to be changed every ten or so years.
To summarise, the more complex your pool build, the higher your final costs are likely to be! There are also other costs to consider such as the pool decking and landscaping to the area.
