When potential pool owners contact us about designing and building indoor swimming pools, one of the first questions they ask is:
How much does an indoor swimming pool cost?
This is a very difficult question to answer. No two swimming pools are the same, and all of our pools are bespoke.
In this blog post, we will detail the different options for indoor swimming pools, and how these can affect the overall cost.
At the simplest level, a standard specification indoor swimming pool (10m x 5m x 1.4m) starts at around £125,000, plus VAT. These are typically skimmer pools. Deck Level pools cost an additional £20,000 (approximate). You can read about the differences between pool types here.
Standard pools are constructed as steel reinforced concrete pool shells and are fully equipped with:
- ABS white pool shell fittings and skimmers
- Mid-range white LED swimming pool lights
- Glass mosaic pool tiles at £50 per metre squared
- A standard filtration system
- A heat and ventilation system
- An automatic pool cover
But with so many options available, price ranges can vary hugely.
Picking The Right Indoor Pool
Just as a Range Rover can cost anything from £80,000 – £140,000 depending on the extras added to the buyer’s package, swimming pools are tailored to your individual needs depending on the add-ons that you specify.
People often upgrade their cars when they find that they haven’t got what they wanted first time round. You don’t want to be in this situation with an indoor pool. You’re going to see your pool (and hopefully use it) every day, so it needs to be designed to your taste from the beginning.
Picking the right pool design is critical to ensure maximum enjoyment with minimum maintenance. Most purchasers elect to invest in the pool that will make them happiest in the long-run.
Unfortunately, some purchasers only focus on the initial price of the pool and find the cheapest contractor to work with. This decision comes with sacrifices, causing the purchaser to miss out on:
- Drinking-water quality pool water
- Easy maintenance
- A warranty
- Aesthetic features
We’ve seen the ‘just using the lowest price’ scenario often enough to recognise the inevitable regret when a buyer ends up dissatisfied with their swimming pool, and unlike a vehicle, it can’t be upgraded easily.
Indoor Pool Installation Costs
When we are asked about costs, the extent of installation is always a key point.
At Starpool we prefer to carry out the entire pool installation process for all our customers; we are highly experienced in offer complete turn key solutions. However, in certain situations where a pool is being constructed as part of a new house build, it may be beneficial for the main contractor to construct the pool shell alongside the walls and floors.
