What is the cost of an Inground swimming pool?

The construction cost of an inground swimming pool will depend on several factors: pool type selected, project location, the total scope of the project, and a company hired for a build.


After COVID-19 changes, the cost of products and materials, supplies, heavy machinery, trucking, and labor significantly increased. As a result, the overall construction cost increased as well.

Local municipalities can drive the construction cost up by creating complicated ordinances and regulations. For example, soil tests before disposal or particular site preparations will increase the time and cost of construction.
