Found this thread but it is a little old. Looking to get some bids on putting in a pool and would love references to contractors who have done a good job while being affordable.

We had two pools done with Swimcraft off Wells Rd.. I think they changed their name to Coastal Luxury outdoors. Jacksonville Swimming Pool Contractor - Swimcraft Pools - Luxury Pool Builder in Jacksonville, FL

They did a great job and a lot of the "upgrades" that other companies charge extra for are part of their Swimcrafts standard package. We love our pool.

What's the average cost for pool installation? Is there such a thing as "average cost?" My wife wants a small pool in the backyard but I'm convinced you're looking at $20k+ to have a pool put in, and I don't think I'm ready for the committment.

There are standard costs for pools , depending on size. But then there's options that drive up the costs and other various factors. (such as how good/bad is the access to your backyard)

Honestly I seriously doubt you will find one for under 20k, even a smaller basic one. We has a relatively small, (well 15x30 but it seemed smaller to me) it was pretty average in upgrades, it was a pregnant-kidney shape with a nice fountain and it was close to 30k. This was 2002. I consider this one to be average, there was nothing "bells and whistles" about it. Take out the fountain and it would have been about 25k...

In our new house now we put in a large upgraded pool with a rock spa, huge rock fountain, 8 ft in depth, extended paver patio with many other upgrades for about 50k.

Pools are expensive but very worth it if you plan on staying in your home. (and actually using the pool)

A boat is a hole in the water that you pour money into.

Swimcraft installed the pool in the home we purchased. Obviously it was installed before we were here but the result is beautiful and so far has been trouble free.
