How Much Does a Plunge Pool Cost?
Sizzling in summer and looking for a way to cool off, without taking up too much outdoor space? A plunge pool may be the answer. But how much does a plunge pool cost to install? We provide all the answers in this handy guide.
Why Buy a Plunge Pool?
A plunge pool ticks all the boxes for many reasons – it can fit into a small outdoor space and can cost significantly less to run than a backyard fibreglass or concrete pool.
Plunge Pool Cost Considerations
The cost of your new plunge pool will vary according to where you live, where you want the pool installed and the size of pool you choose. Transport and optional extras will also need to be taken into consideration. Installation costs are usually around $5,000 or more. All up, you’re looking at around $25,000 to $30,000 or more. On top of the cost of the shell and installation costs, there are many additional costs to weigh up. You may need to hire a landscaper, decking expert, outdoor furniture, heating and pool maintenance. And to meet pool laws, you’ll need pool fencing. These can add a significant amount to the cost, so it’s wise to get quotes from these suppliers when calculating your costs. This will ensure you don’t blow your budget as well. Above all, your pool installation costs shouldn’t be more than 15 percent of your home’s value. Of course, factor in that a pool may also add value to your home when you come to sell it.
Getting Quotes for a Plunge Pool
Plunge pool suppliers can give you a more accurate rate for having your pool installed. Ensure you get quotes from several suppliers, so you can compare inclusions, extras and overall costings. Above all, check the supplier’s insurance, warranties, policies and examples of past work.
