The cost of a pool installation in Charlotte will depend on what type of pool will you want for your home. The two types of swimming pools are the above ground and in-ground pools. A standard 19’ diameter above ground swimming pool is estimated to cost around $6,250. On the other hand, the average 32’x16’ in-ground swimming pool is around $22,000. Some homeowners may opt to build their pools on their own to save costs. However, most DIY pools only last for 2 to 3 years, and that means high maintenance costs for a short period which makes them more expensive than professionally built pools that can last for many years and include a warranty.

Can I install an above-ground pool on my own in Charlotte?

Pool installation is considered to be a job that should only be handled by professionals. Even if most above ground pools are designed to be installed quickly, professional pool contractors can guarantee the work and will provide a warranty.
