Factors that determine the price of a pool
The most important thing to keep in mind is that your unique site conditions mainly dictate the cost of your pool. By site conditions, we mean backyard access, utilities, elevations, demolition, and city regulation. These factors do not allow standardized pricing as they are unique for each particular yard and an on-the-spot visit is mandatory for a cost assessment.
Factors that will ramp up the cost of your pool
Narrow backyard access – If the width of the pathway from the street to the pool location is narrower than 10 feet, a smaller piece of equipment will be required in order to gain access and execute the excavation.
Gate and/or wall demolition and elevation – Recognizing and determining the needed yard preparation, demolition of engineering efforts required for undertaking the elevation changes for your selected type of pool.
Special engineering, grading and drainage plans, retention engineering, resolution plans
Yards with extreme elevations, lots on a hillside, areas of difficult permit regulations that have unauthorized work onsite or structures that attract additional permit costs.
- Pregrade work
The pool building terrain area has to be cleared of all existing landscaping, grass, and debris in order to ensure a proper and uncomplicated construction.
- Soil conditions.
Additional excavation costs are triggered by expansive, rocky, or caliche soil which may obstruct the construction of a stable pool structure.
- Sanitation and cleaning systems setup
This includes items like Ozone/UV sanitizers, in-floor cleaning systems (pop-ups) and salt water systems.
- Longer utility run than 50ft
Additional costs will be prompted if the runs from the pool equipment to the electrical panel are more than 50ft.
- Skimmer runs longer than 15ft
If the run from the skimmer to the pool equipment extends over 15ft then additional costs will be triggered.
- Unallotted sq ft of decking
Every additional square foot of deck will be charged per footage if not foreseen in the standard play pool projection.
- Exceeding 75ft perimeter and 5ft depth
Larger and deeper scaled pools than the standard norm will be charged per increase in the internal area.
Installing a heater will attract additional expenses for the implementation of gas lines, authorizations and heating device, as well as surplus electric costs when introducing a heat pump.
Baja shelf, water feature, fire feature, or spa are some additional pool features that will increase the pool cost and value.
