How much does a pool cost?

Swimming pools range in cost. A simplistic pool might fall around $20,000, and a more extravagant pool, $70,000 and up. Pool features increase the cost, so keep this in mind if you’re considering option like spas, gas heaters, and fancier water purification systems. If your pool build includes cutting into slopes and hills, or demolishing existing back yard structures like walls and fences, excavation is going to add to the overall cost, too.

Adding things like slides, waterfalls and rock features, deciding on what kind of decking you want around the pool, and maybe upgrading to a pebble finish, are all available options. The most important thing is to establish your budget, then design to that budget.
