How Much Do Inground Pools Cost in the Des Moines area? 

Inground pools in the Des Moines, IA area typically start around $85,000 and can go upward of $200,000, with an average price range of a fiberglass pool typically being between $90,000 and $130,000. 

Every pool project is unique. Give us a call to discuss the backyard of your dreams. 

Some of the factors that affect the price of an inground swimming pool in Des Moines are: 

1.  The pool type (fiberglass, gunite, or vinyl)

Gunite pools are typically the most expensive type to install and own in the Des Moines area. 

Vinyl liner pools are the least expensive to install initially, but the cost of liner replacements over time can make them more costly in the long run.

Fiberglass pools have the advantage of having a lower initial price than gunite, and a lower lifetime cost of ownership than both other pool types. 

This is due to the unmatched durability of fiberglass pools. 

With a lifetime warranty on the structure of the pool and an amazing low-maintenance gelcoat finish, a fiberglass pool shell will typically not require any repair or refinishing work for decades. 

2.  Access to the backyard 

Pool construction requires moving a tremendous amount of construction materials (dirt, stone, concrete, the pool shell, etc.) in and out of your backyard. Because of this, the accessibility of trucks and other equipment to the site plays a factor in the price of your pool. 

In extreme cases, this can impact the pool installation price by as much as $5,000 or $10,000. 

3.  The scope of the project

River Pools Des Moines specializes in designing and building pool projects of all sizes, but it all begins with a fantastic pool and patio. 

According to your budget and needs, the design often integrates elements such as gazebos, pergolas, pool houses, hot tubs, custom retaining walls, etc.  

As the scope of the project grows, so does the budget. 

At River Pools Des Moines, we are experts at helping you develop your long-term vision for your backyard and creating a plan to get you there, whether implemented all at once or phased in over time.
