Default What's the price range for an inground pool in GA?

Can you give me an idea how much it would cost to install a rectangular in-round pool? Thanks

I started looking around earlier this summer, and what I've been finding is a base price in the mid $20k range. The sky's the limit from there.

You get what you pay for.I would definitely shop around and do your homework on this.A lot of pool places do a rush job and it looks great but overtime their poor workmanship shows through.I would ask every possible question that you can think of when considering.

The two characteristics mentioned: rectangular and in-round are mutually exclusive.

I'm thinking he meant "in-ground". Of course, he could also be mis-spelling "un-round"......lol.

Other considerations are vinyl liner or gunite (concrete), as well as the topography of your site.

I meant to write, in-ground, but you knew that. I assume gunite is better and lasts longer, right?

A gunite pool will cost more than a vinyl liner...but it will last. We put an inground gunite pebble tech surface in 2004. Our pool is also a salt water pool...saves money in chemical cost. The salt system costs a little more, but it's well worth it. We put 2-3 40# bags of salt in all year, at the cost of $4.75 a bag, that's it! Anyway, depending on the size of what you are looking for, if there is any buried trash that has to removed or if they hit rock when they dig, these are all variables. By the way, the salt water is not like ocean water...it is like saline solution for contacts. It is much better for your skin, hair, etc. than chlorine. Our pool is 38' wide by 18' long, kidney shaped and 3-9 1/2 feet deep.The cost of the pool with the concrete decking was about $32,000. Do your homework..pick a reputable pool company, otherwise you could have an expensive nightmare on your hands. Good Luck!

thank you, rasmom. I hadn't thought of salt water. do you think that a kidney shaped would cost more than a rectangle? I was guessing that the right size would be around 20-24 by 36 ft.

one more question: how many months per yr do you think you are able to use your pool? I was guessing from may until october. Is that about right?

Oh definately get the saltwater. We had a pool in FL that I hardly used because I hated the chlorine. When we moved to GA this past January, we bought a house that had a pool with a salt generator. What a difference.

TheChooch, being from Fl and liking the water really warm, I didn't swim in my pool this year until about the middle of June. This past summer being so hot kept it really warm. It got cold for me around Labor Day.
