Installing a Pool?

Thinking of adding an above-ground pool to your home? đźŹŠ

That’s great!

Having a pool at home can be an awesome source of fun and a great way to make memories. 

But is it worth it? 

Is the cost and work of putting in an above-ground pool worth the payoff? 

For starters, HomeAdvisor’s estimates that it costs between $734 and $4,609 to purchase and install an above-ground pool, and the average cost hovers around $2,569. 

That’s way less expensive than an inground pool ($28,000 – $55,000). 

The cost of the above-ground pool installation will depend on the following components…

Material — The three primary options are steel, aluminum, and resin. Resin is the most expensive, durable, and rust-resistant option. 

Pool Maintenance — If you maintain the pool yourself, then it’ll only cost around $200 a year. If you want to hire someone else to maintain the pool, then it’ll run about $150 per service. 

Landscaping — Without some intentional landscaping, an above-ground pool can stand out like a sore thumb. It’s a good idea to put away about $1,000 for landscaping to make the pool blend in more seamlessly. 

Permits — Many cities require a permit to install an above-ground pool. This will be a one-time cost of between $150 to $300. 

Electrical Work — Typically, an above-ground pool will boost a homeowner’s electricity bill by $30 to $250 per month. And the initial electrical cost will be about $350 to $1,500 to get your new pool up and running. 

So there it is!
