When shopping for an above ground pool most people just look at the sticker price of the pool. There is alot more that goes into the final cost of any project, let alone an above ground pool. We will try to shed some light on the true cost of an above ground pool and compare that to an in ground vinyl pool. The difference may surprise you!
Most people fail to factor in the cost of the deck. The Above Ground Pool actually ends up being the least expensive portion of most pool projects. If you add up the cost of an above ground pool, professional installation and a deck that completely surrounds the pool you are talking about a project cost of $30,000.00 plus. The average above ground pool installed cost around $5,500.00 - $6,000.00. Complete decks around the pool can run from $15,000 to $30,000.00 plus depending on size, materials, and options.
You can easily get yourself one of our Fox Ultimate Pools, Latham Rockwood, and Our Optimum Pools, for the price of an above ground pool with a composite deck like the one featured above. This pool can be installed completely in the ground with a concrete decking, pump, filter, heater and installation all ready to go.
The round pool is where you will get the most bang for your buck. You will get more usable space at a alower cost with a round pool than an oval due to the installation process.
