How Much Does a Pool Cost?

The first question many home owners considering adding a pool ask themselves is, “How much does a pool cost?”

We understand that the process of building or re-modeling a pool can be daunting, especially when you aren’t sure how it will affect you financially. Let’s talk about some factors affecting pool pricing.  The image below is from our 3D Design Studio and shows an average-size pool measuring 14′ x 28′.  Our base price for this standard size pool with electric, tile and a 3 ft paver deck starts between $26,000 – $33,000 depending on finishes and options chosen.  A 6′ round add-on spa would add approximately $10,000 to your overall price.

Other Factors Affecting Pool Price

Safety – Safety measures are important for families who have small children of if children visit your home.  County Building Codes require a pool barrier or an alarm on the doors and windows of the home or the pool itself.   Screen Enclosures are installed by a licensed screen enclosure contractor and the cost averages about $10,000 for a 14′ x 28′ pool.

Lighting – You can add LED or fiber optic lights to your pool.  LED lights are more popular because of lower installation and maintenance costs.  Expect to pay between $500-1000 for simple lighting. You can also add colored or color-changing lights for added flair.  For brilliant multi-color LED lighting, we use Pentair GloBrite lights which use the industry’s most advanced technology for bright, energy-efficient lighting, while using less energy than comparable pool and spa lights

Heating – Living in Florida means that you can forego a heating system for your pool and still enjoy it almost year-round. However, if you do decide to install a heating system, you can choose between solar power, gas power, or a heat pump. Each will run about $2,500 for set-up.

Decor and Accessories – When it comes to add-ons for your pool, the options are limitless. From decorative tile, to waterfalls and fountains, to fire pits and fire bowls, there are many ways to make your pool stand out. Read more here!
