How much does a fiberglass pool cost?

This the most important and first question everyone should ask, and the answer is? It depends. It's probably not the answer you are looking for, but it is the truth. Due to the endless amount of variables found in each yard and home it is almost impossible to give an accurate price without first visiting your yard to eliminate those variables so that we can provide you with a personalized estimate. Since that cant really happen over the internet and we can't possibly visit every persons yard that has interest ina pool, the best thing we can do is to provide you a base price range. This will help you determine if moving forward with a personlized quote is realistic for you or not.

I will break down by model a cost range and a list of conditions that may affect the actual cost. We will start out with the most popular models first.

Variables to Cost


Site Access is the first variable that needs to be addressed. We need 8-10 feet of unobstructed flat ground to drive our dump trucks in and out of the job site. Our

if we cannot drive our dump trucks into and next to the pool to load the excavated

soil, and deliver gravel we will need to move the excavated material by machine to the fron of the yard to load into trucks which will take extra time and add to the cost.


If the area in your yard has a signfificant slope there may be a need to install a retaining

wall or grade the area out around the pool. This can add time and cost to complete the



Buried or overhead utilities can affect how we can get equipment in and out of the job site

most notably the pool. Septic Tanks, private wells, propane tanks are all potential areas that

may affect the placment and installation of a pool.


Fencing in the area may affect the ability to get in and out and maneuver inside the pool site


Travel is the most common factor that may cause our pool pricing to vary. Anytime we travel

outside of the Greater Green Bay area we incurr additional costs for fuel, wear and tear on

vehicles and additional employee wages for the time travelled. Travel also affects the cost of delivery of the pool shell from the manufacturer as well. The additional cost can range anywhere

from a several hundred to a few thousand based on the distance and time travelled and the

number of trips needed to complete the project.
