I have owned a pool for over 25 years and have enjoyed. Since you are asking about the price I would like to tell you about some features you may or may not want. An automatic water leveler automatically adds water to the pool; however, there is no way to tell if you have a leak until the your water bill comes in. Although I have a clorinator the new pools have a salt system that is quite good. Both my son and my son-in-law have them and they seem great. No stingy eyes. A filter that is diatomacious earth really is clear; however cleaning the filters can be a pain.I would suggest that you meet with several pool companies and get them to tell you about the options. Then go to a pool suppy company and get the prices for the chemicals. A pool is not cheap to operate. You normally have 2 motors that run from 3-12 hrs a day and that should be considered. You are welcome to contact me and I will be happy to give you somemore tips. Regards, Tim

It could be $25,000 up $100,000 depending on how nice you want it and and how much rock you have to excavate. There are too many unknown variables that need to be answered before getting you a better estimate.

Feel free to call any pool contractor and they should be able to assist.

Good luck.

I'd guess $40K for a fairly nice in ground pool. Of course this can vary a lot. Lots of profit in the pool business I'm told. It's also a big thing to manage.

Hello -

Here is a site that can get you several pool quotes... Austin is in Travis county of course:


You might request a quote for a salt water pool and the newest trend, a UV pool. Both use alternate means {Salt, UV light} besides stabilized Chlorine for keeping them sanitized.

What type of pool - something basic or more complicated and design-oriented? It really depends, like asking what it would cost to build a home without talking square feet and amenities.

If you need a recommendation for a pool builder, I can help.

Good luck!

I am a Real Estate Agent and General Contractor. Pools can get expensive but I would say $25k for a base model pool. Let me know if you need anymore help.
