Robert Guth’s answer
Just a follow up.....I was suprised to see the higher quotes here. I havent paid more than $23,000 yet, and that included everything....pool, paver deck, pool cage, pool equipment, alarm system, etc. If you want to see what $23,000 gets you, I had a pool built for a property I bought and sold located at: 2508 SE 8th Place in Cape Coral. It is easy to see if you drive by, right near the intersection of Veterans and Country Club. The home is occupied, so please respect the home owner's privacy. Perhaps Craig has been giving me great pricing, so I would mention my name when you call, and ask for the same price that he gave me. His quality and professionalism really couldnt have been any better. I had my guardup the first time, so you can imagine I wouldnt have had him build 2 more pools if I was unhappy.

It depends, on what size do you want, the area that you live and the fence that you should built around the pool, you should probably budget between $23 to $35.000 for an in ground pool.

Best of Luck,

I have been wondering this too. Thanks for this answer. That sounds about right to me. My friend recently put a pool in their backyard. I see how much fun they have with it and want to get one too.

I would get three estimates. It depends on the size of the pool, with a cage or without, waterfall etc.

Hi Sheila:

$30K is normal, and for an Olympic Size it can be as much as $85K.

If you go with exotic Cabana and Surroundings then $130K.

Good luck.

Good Morning Everyone! =)

Pool companies range in prices depending on what style, size, flooring, and features you decide to pick. Typically for a decent pool with a screen cage, you are looking to spend around $27,000 - $30,000. If you want to add a waterfall or jacuzzi then the price starts to increase.

On average, my clients spend between $35,000 - $45,000.

Be sure to get at least 3 quotes. I like to refer Joe Mitchell at Pool Pro's 239-277-7783 http://www.poolpros-inc.com He is really fantastic and is very active in the community.

Good Luck with the Pool Search!

I have had 3 pools built over the last 1.5 years. They have cost me around $23,000 each time, and that included everything needed, and a pavered deck. Not sure if this helps you much, but I can also say that I have lived in Cape Coral all of my life, and after talking to many pool companies, and getting several estimates, I have been going with Craig's Pacific Pools. He has finished each pool right on schedule, no surprises, no complaints. He's been in business a long time too. Each pool I had built did not have a hot tub, waterfall, etc.

Have someone come out and give you a quote though because if the backyard needs a retaining wall or more fill, that could increase your costs.

My friend also uses Craig's. I think her pool was a little bit more though. I think it was just because she added extra things. She really enjoyed working with them also.

To quote a pool package price a contractor needs to take in consideration few factors:

1. Pool area.
2. Deck area.
3. Pool cage.
4. Any extra toys like water falls, lighting, heather, etc.

Base pool price is all over board and as a rule considere $30,000 for a basic pool.

My clients have installed 14 pools so far this year and the average cost of a standard pool and cage is around $25,000.

Please call or email me if you have any questions and I would love to apply for a job as your realtor.

I'd get at least three estimates with and without a spa. I've seen most pools go in at 30-35K in recent months. Any less and you'll get something too small for a lounge chair on the deck and two floaters in the pool! And, be sure it's positioned for the rear exposure you have...especially if you have a Northern exposure...too close to the house means no sun on the pool or the deck in the winter months. Be careful of planters and decide if you want to walk aronnd your pool or not and the heating system you require....all price points to consider.

You can pay as little as in the low 20's up to the 50's and higher depending on what you want. Waterfalls, spas, extended pool deck area and other add ons of course increase the price.

between 25k on up.....decent spool package with pool/spa and cage will be 40-50k

I have seen offers for complete pools with screen enclosure for $17,900 but that is basic and if you get any add-ons, it should push it up to $25k or more.

It depends, on what size you want, the area that you live and the fence or lanai that you built around the pool, probably budget between $25,000 to $35,000 for an in ground pool.

You can get a nice basic pool, cage and paver deck for around 25k. You can always spend as much as you like for extras.

I hope this helps,

The cost of your pool varies depending on the pool type, construction costs, filters and pumps and all other extras like aesthetic or enhanced look.
