SWIMMING POOL PRICES
The price for installing a swimming pool depends on a number of factors and can vary significantly depending on the size of the pool, the materials used for construction, the type of pool (e.g., in-ground, above-ground), the location of the pool in relation to the property (how easy or difficult is the access) , and the features and accessories that are desired.
In general, the cost of building a new in-ground pool can range from around £25,000 going up to £100,000 or even more, depending on the size and features of the pool. Above-ground pools are typically less expensive, with prices ranging from about £10,000 to £20,000 or more. Refurbishing or updating an existing pool can also be costly, depending on the scope of the work that is needed. If you are considering building a new swimming pool or refurbishing an existing one, it is important to carefully consider the available choices and get professional advice to ascertain what would suit your property and your lifestyle.
Other things that affect the price of a swimming pool are automatic covers, pool surrounds, water features and counter current swimming machines. If the pool is installed indoors, a H&V system is necessary and basic H&V packages start from £6,000 going up to £30,000 or for a fully ducted system with fresh air option.
We reckon that the difference between a “good liner pool and a great tiled pool” is around two fold, so you can spend £40,000 and get a nice looking 10m X 4m vinyl liner outdoor pool with stainless steel ladder, white underwater lights, and a manual solar pool cover, while £80,000 would fetch you an excellent, fully bespoke concrete tiled pool of similar size with automatic pool cover or maybe a rolling deck if the space permits, LED lighting and some nice pool features. In case the tiled pool is being installed indoors or in an extension, the H&V system would add another £20,000 to the price making the total a round sum of £100,000.
