Fiberglass Pool Prices: How Much is My Pool Really Going to Cost?

Posted by Marcus Sheridan

How much does a fiberglass pool cost?  ....or......What's the price of a fiberglass pool?

Splash!This, of course, is always one of the first questions a pool shopper has when starting the research process for a fiberglass pool. The problem with answering this question, though, is the fact that a swimming pool has so many options it can be very tough for one to truly know what the price to swim in a fiberglass pool will be. Notwithstanding, I'll do my best here to give you some realistic price ranges as to what most people will spend. (And remember, these prices are AVERAGE, and can vary drastically depending on the product, the region, the company, etc, etc)

Just the Shell

Occasionally I'll have a customer that just wants to buy the fiberglass shell. Although there are many more costs involved with a fiberglass pool installation, there are people out there that want to do everything and buy every single component individually. Therefore, the expected price range is as follows(Keep in mind these price ranges do not include shipping, filter system, etc:

Small Fiberglass Pool Shell(26' in length or less): $10,000-$19,000

Medium Fiberglass Pool Shell(27'-34' in length): $13,000-$20,000

Large Fiberglass Pool Shell(35' or more in length): $15,000-$27,000

Basic Install:

This typically includes: Shell, shipping, pump/filter system, excavation, backfill, pool full water

Most pools, not including other options, will have a price range of $25,000-$45,000. (This, like everything else mentioned in this article, is contingent on a variety of factors)

Basic Install plus Concrete:

This includes everything mentioned in the basic install plus the concrete patio(Most concrete patios range from 400-800 square feet around a swimming pool)

Typical Price Range: $23,000-$50,000

Turn Key:

This includes everything found in Basic install w/concrete, but it also includes fencing and electrical costs.

Typical Price Range: $35,000-$75,000

Prices For Other Options:

Automatic Pool Covers: Prices usually run between $5000-$13,000 for most autocovers

Salt Chorine Generators: Salt systems usually cost between $1,000-$2500

Pool Security Covers: Prices for Security Covers range from $1300-$3000 in most cases

Heat Pumps: Most heat pumps cost between $3500-$6000, plus additional cost for electrical hook up

Waterline/Perimeter Tile: Most pool dealers charge between $1500-$3000 to tile a fiberglass swimming pool (on the waterline).

Retaining Walls: Retaining walls can get very expensive, and depending on the size can obviously vary a huge degree. Most walls cost $5000-$15,000.

Water Features: The price of pool water features vary drastically, especially when it comes to custom waterfalls.

Pool Lights: Most pool lights cost between $700-$2000

Although all of these numbers and prices are very general, I do hope this article helps you to have a better feel for fiberglass pool pricing and what to expect when you start going through the pool buying process.
