A swimming pool is a wonderful addition to a home. It adds value to your home and makes for an excellent recreational activity. The price range for a pool varies from $500 to $20,000. An example of a $500 dollar pool is an above ground pool. Above ground pools are great for families that have a small backyard and can not dig a pool in the ground. An example of a higher-end pool is an Olympic style pool.
What Decides How Much You Will Pay For Your Pool?
The price you will pay for your pool all depends on the materials used, the size you desire, the shape you prefer and your landscape.
In-Ground Swimming Pools
In-ground swimming pools are the ideal type of pool most would want but some cannot afford. If you are worried about the cost of installing an in-ground pool, then you should install a vinyl-liner pool because it can help keep your project cost-effective. The difference between a concrete pool and a vinyl-liner pool is that a vinyl liner is placed in the hole rather than concrete being poured into it after a big hole is dug out to install plumbing. Vinyl liner frames are made with plastic, steel, masonry block, wood, or aluminum to support the vinyl liner.
What Happens When Tears are formed in a Vinyl Liner Pool?
Vinyl liner tears are easily repaired and most cases, you will not have to drain out the water of your pool. A vinyl liner pool can last up to 10 years before it needs to be replaced.
Sprayed Concrete Pools
If you want to get really creative with the shape of your pool, install a sprayed concrete pool. The materials used in a sprayed concrete pool are Shotcrete or Gunite. To learn about sprayed concrete pools, read here.
