How much does a pool Cost?
If you have thought about installing a pool in your Las Vegas home or elsewhere in Nevada and unsure about how much it will cost. This brief guide can give you a start by exploring some of the basic options available for the installation of custom pools.
Custom pools or spas can not only be fun for your family and house guests. Especially in the warm climate of Las Vegas, Nevada. But can also add an element of beauty to your home and add to the overall value of your property. There are two types of pools: the above-ground pool and the in-ground pool. While above-ground pools are typically less expensive and can be installed quite easily and quickly. In-ground custom pools offer permanence and more aesthetic appeal. In-ground custom pools also offer a wide range of choices as far as depth, length, shape, and other customized options. There are three types of in-ground pools and each has its own specific costs and features. Here are the three basic types of in-ground custom pools.
Concrete pools are installed by pouring concrete to form the shell of the pool. As with all types of pools, the cost of installation can vary depending on the size, location and any additional features. But can fall within the range of $20,000 to $100,000. Concrete pools do require long term maintenance such as acid washing. Acid washing needed to prevent the buildup of fungi and algae, resurfacing and repainting of the concrete so that it stays smooth. Regular scrubbing and will typically use more electricity and chemicals over time than the other types of pools because they are usually larger.
Fiberglass pools are installed with a preformed, smooth mold in the desired shape and size. Which fits and is inserted into a previously dug out area of the ground. Because the molds are premade, transported, and subject to breakage, there are some limitations to the size and depth of a fiberglass pool. However, they are typically the easiest to maintain since they require relatively little upkeep and long term maintenance. Fiberglass pools can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $85,000 for the cost of delivery and installation.
Vinyl pools are one of the most popular options because they generally cost the least due to the material. And have the lowest costs for maintenance. They can be highly customized and have a non-abrasive surface. Which isn’t prone to the formation of algae and therefore doesn’t require chemical treatments. The cost of a vinyl pool can fall anywhere between $10,000 to $50,000 for installation.
Spas and Hot Tubs
A feature that is very often included with pool installations in Nevada is the installation of custom spas or hot tubs. The terms spa and hot tub are often used interchangeably because both refer to tubs that have jets of hot, bubbly water. They can be used for relaxation and therapeutic purposes. Specifically however, spas refer to the tubs which are set in the ground, custom built and often placed alongside an in-ground pool. Custom spas can be made from a wide variety of materials like concrete, fiberglass, stainless steel, copper or even tile. Hot tubs are more often considered to be the type of hot tub. Which is above ground and can also be made from various materials such as vinyl, fiberglass, wood, plastic, or acrylic.
Other Features – Water Features
Other features to consider for the installation of your pool and/ or spa are water features and your pool lighting and if applicable, your spa lighting too. Water features can add a beautiful and artistic touch to your in-ground pool. They can be custom created and include elements like waterfalls, bubblers, small water sconces on the sides of the pool, spouting stone animals or sea creatures, small jet streams and other decorative and playful customizations. This type of pool feature does require some basic planning with pipe work so even if you don’t want to have them installed now. It is important to think about whether you might like to add water features in the future.
Other Features – Lighting
Yet another way to add interest and beauty to your pool and/ or spa is to add pool lighting and spa lighting. Today there are countless choices when it comes to choosing lighting for your pool and spa. External pool lighting is essential if the pool and spa are to be used at nighttime. That can be placed in or outside of the water. Installing lighting beneath the water inside the pool and spa is a technical job and must be handled by a professional to avoid the risks of electric shocks. Special watertight light fixtures can be used to light the water from the bottom or sides of the pool. Spa lighting might include colored lights from within to enhance mood and atmosphere.
The final costs of installing an in-ground pool or hot tub can vary greatly due to the array of options and also the add on choices such as pool lighting, spa lighting, and water features. In fact even your location and any property permits that may be required in Nevada. That can impact the costs involved so that even a rough estimate is sometimes hard to narrow down.
