Costs of In ground Swimming Pools: A Couple Things to Consider
There are two things to consider when researching the cost of inground pools:
- The initial purchase price of the pool
- The lifetime cost of ownership associated with the pool
First, let’s take a look at the initial cost of concrete, vinyl liner, and fiberglass pools to get an idea of how much to budget for each.
Keep in mind that these prices will vary greatly from region to region.
Then, we’ll look at the long-term cost associated with owning each type of pool.

Fiberglass Pools: Initial Cost
At River Pools, we offer four distinct types of fiberglass pool packages:
- Assisted installation (dig, set, fill)
- Basic installation
- Turn-key installation
Let’s take a look at each to learn more.
Fiberglass Pool Self-Installations
A self-installation package would include the pool shell and delivery of the pool to the home. The customer takes it from there.
The obvious advantage of installing your own fiberglass pool is what you’d save from reducing the swimming pool installation cost. On average, most people will save between $6,000 and $10,000depending on the scope of the project and who does the majority of the work.
The price of the pool shell is determined by two things: the size of the pool and the cost to deliver the pool to your home.
If you are considering a self-installation, ask if the quoted price includes delivery.
If it does not, get a delivery quote in writing.
Fiberglass pools are basically classified into three size groups:
- small—roughly 27 ft. long and under
- medium—28–34 ft. long
- large—35 ft. long and up
