Are you currently looking to buy your own swimming pool? If yes, there are probably several factors you are considering for this type of investment. These may include the size of your swimming pool, the location, and the funds necessary for the purchase.
Similarly like other forms of investments, you will have to prepare financially prior to the purchase as well as throughout maintaining whatever purchase you made. Keep in mind that owning a swimming pool is not a onetime investment. It involves continuous expenses as long as you own the pool, particularly in pool maintenance and upkeep.
Have you decided which type of swimming pool to buy? If not, here are the basic types of Myrtle Beach swimming pool to choose from:
1. Above ground swimming pool
This is the most affordable type of swimming pool because there is no custom building necessary. You simply choose among the prebuilt pools and it will be installed to your yard as is. There is not even a need to excavate the ground because it can be placed above ground.
Some above ground pools come with their own decks but you can buy one without a deck and choose to build a new sturdier deck for the pool. An above ground swimming pool ranges from $5,000 to $9,000. This includes the purchase and installation costs. A new deck for your pool will cost you an additional $2,500 to $5,000.
2. Fiberglass pool
A fiberglass pool is already pre-built like the above ground pool. The only difference is that a fiberglass pool is lowered into a hole in your yard. The installation process takes a bit longer than with an above ground pool because of the need to excavate the ground. After that, lowering the pool into the hole will be quick because the pool is already pre-built.
The average size of a fiberglass pool costs $12,000 to $20,000 while a larger size ranges between $15,000 and $30,000. This includes the purchase and the installation costs. Necessary additions to your Myrtle Beach swimming pool such as pool lights and pool cover require added costs.
3. Custom built swimming pool
If you didn’t find a specific type of pool from the range of pre-built pools, you can opt to have your swimming pool custom made. The process starts with you and the swimming pool construction company creating the design for your pool. Once that is finalized, they will come to your house to excavate the yard and create foundation for the pool using rebar and wire. After the foundation is finished, they will use concrete or gunite to construct your pool.
Because your pool will be built from scratch, this will require sufficient time and money to accomplish. An average size of a custom built pool costs about $25,000. This amount doesn’t include tiling and automated cleaning functions yet. A large custom built pool complete with tiling and cleaning functions will cost as much as $50,000.
