Six Tips to Picking the Perfect In-Ground Swimming Pool

Do you want to pick the perfect in-ground swimming pool for your lifestyle? If yes, we are here to help. In-ground swimming pools are great for personal usage and a great financial investment. Your family can enjoy hours of family fun and entertainment, while increasing the overall value of your home.

It gets better. In-ground pools can be installed in different shapes and sizes to fit any type of background. The pool designs can be simple or elaborate. You can multiple depths, slides, diving boards, or attached spas.

But before installing an in-ground swimming pool, you should consider the following six things as a homeowner: Cost, material, design, construction, landscaping and maintenance.


In-ground pools can cost from $20,000 to $40,000 dollars. Cost depends on the size, style, materials used, land preparation, landscaping, pool features and accessories. In addition to this cost, you must consider the additional costs for electricity, gas and water for your pool to function.

Materials & Design

In-ground pools can be constructed with gunite concrete, fiberglass or vinyl. Gunite and concrete pools are the most expensive of choices. Gunite and concrete are also the highest of quality and durability. They may take longer to construct but you have diverse options when it comes to design.

For example, fiberglass pools are the easiest to maintain and the quickest to install. The downside is that they require truck access to the backyard because the pool is installed as one large piece.

Vinyl pools are the least expensive in-ground pool but it is more prone to ripping, staining and leaking.


Before you construct an in-ground pool, remember to choose a reliable company that has credentials, references, and referrals. An excellent company’s service will provide you the option to create the perfect pool for your family based on available space, the usage of the pool and the features you desire. Also, the company will provide an accurate timeline for pool construction and completion. The construction will start with digging a hole for the swimming pool. Once this task is completed, the timetables for completion will vary based on material and accessory choices.
