If you’re thinking about having an above-ground pool installed on your property, one of the first things you’ll want to research is how much the installation will cost. The good news is, above-ground swimming pools are relatively economical to install, especially when compared to their in-ground counterparts. While an in-ground pool can cost between $28,000 to over $55,000, the cost of having an above-ground swimming pool installed is typically in the range of $2,000 to $5,000 according to HomeGuide. Keep in mind that these are just rough estimates based on national averages, and the actual cost for you may vary depending on many different factors.

Factors That Affect the Price of a Pool Installation

Many different factors can affect the price of having an above-ground pool installed. Some of these factors include:

The Size and Shape of the Pool

As the size of the pool goes up, you can expect the cost to go up as well. Taller (or deeper) swimming pools also involve more material, so you can expect these options to cost more as well.

Pool Accessories

Similarly, if you opt to have a pool deck installed as part of your installation, this will be an additional cost to consider. You’ll also want to consider the cost of water to fill the pool, ladders and steps, a winter cover, and other accessories. While some may be optional nice-to-haves, there are many items you’ll need to ensure a safe and functional swimming pool environment.

Geographic Location

Depending on where you live, the cost of having a pool installed may be higher or lower than the national average based on the local market rate.

All of these factors will influence the overall cost, and you may find that the price for the exact pool and related components you want for your particular property is significantly higher or lower than the averages outlined here.

How to Find Out How Much a Pool Will Cost You

The best way to find out how much it will cost you to have an above-ground swimming pool installed is to request a price quote from a local pool company. This will give you an idea of what to expect based on where you live and the specific size, shape, and type of above-ground swimming pool you’d like for your property. This will also allow you to explore how the cost may vary for different options. If possible, you may want to get two or three cost estimates to make sure that you’re receiving competitive price quotes for your area.
