How to determine the price of a swimming pool installation? What type of pool best suits your budget? In fact, pool price estimates must take several criteria into account. Here’s a quick guide to determining the budget for building a swimming pool.

What does the price of a swimming pool depend on?

The cost of installing a swimming pool depends on a number of factors, including the type of pool, so it’s important to be aware of these factors.

Pool type

  • Above-ground pool
  • In-ground pool
  • Piscine coque polyester

The price of an above-ground pool will therefore be logically different from the price of an in-ground pool and the price of a shell pool.

The desired dimension

  • Made-to-measure
  • Width
  • The length
  • The depth

Work and equipment

  • Whether or not earthworks are necessary
  • Mechanisms used: Some constructions require more complex installation systems
  • Selected materials
  • Designing the space around the pool
  • Taxes: You’ll need to take into account development tax, property tax and council tax, all of which can have a real impact on the cost of construction.

What determines the price of a swimming pool?

The budget for a swimming pool is quite large, ranging from €2,000 to €50,000. As mentioned above, it depends on many parameters. But in general, the price of a swimming pool is estimated by taking into account the type of pool. Thus :

  • An above-ground pool will cost between €1,500 and €10,000;
  • In-ground or semi-in-ground swimming pool kits can be priced from €5,000 to €45,000;
  • Polyester shell pools require the intervention of a professional and cost €10,000 to €20,000;
  • A masonry concrete pool will cost between €20,000 and €30,000 and will take longer to build;
  • When the pool is top-of-the-range, such as an infinity pool or one with special equipment, the price can exceed €30,000.
