  • My SIL just had an above-ground pool installed. All together it was about $4500. I believe it was $1500 to be installed.

  • Parents did one, and it cost them 50k....but was over the top. they had walkways paved to look like it was stone, and a waterslide put in to look like the side of a mountain/cliff....and a lot of other bells and whistles. you'd really have to call a pool place and get an estimate, depending on what your wants are!

  • A basic in-ground pool in my area would cost around 15k-20k.

  • I have an above ground pool. I also happen to work for a company in Toledo, Ohio that sells and installs above ground pools. If you are considering an in ground pool they are 10's of thousands of dollars. Mine was about 2 grand in parts and had I had to pay for the install ( I didn't due to working here) it would have been another 750. We love our pool. It is 21' across and 52" high. We have a light in it and a fountain. We are a very popular house on the street with the kids lol. Happy swimming.
