I’m in Buffalo, NY (in case different areas are more) and my coworker got a new pool installed 4 years ago (inground, salt water system) and I believe it cost $10,000 total. No fence around the actual pool and they must have put in the concrete around it.

I have no idea about how much it is to install/maintenance BUT- a friend of mine recently switched from a chlorine pool to a salt water pool… and said it’s saving them over $2,000 a year!

My parents just put in a pool. It’s nicer than the average pool, so their costs were higher than average as well. Pretty close to $20K, I think. Their pool is the vinyl-lined kind.

I think the price will vary greatly depending on where you are, how much ground leveling and preparation needs to be done, how difficult or easy it is to access your backyard, the cost of permits, etc.  In southern california a nice but not ridiculously over the top pool is about $30,000.

@roxy821:  Saltwater pools are probably not what you think they are. It’s not like saltwater from the ocean or a fish tank, but instead it’s a lower salinity salt that is more like your eyes. Darling Husband has been telling his parents to convert their pool to saltwater, as they wouldn’t need chlorine tablets then. I wish I could better explain it, but it’s not my thing (I could tell you all about saltwater fish tanks though, and I know it’s nothing like that).

I know to put a pool in here you are looking at around 20k and up. Whatever you do, do it right. DH’s parents pool has all sorts of issues and really needs a second skimmer to due it’s size and just doesn’t have the right ‘flow’. Kinda hard to change after the fact without ripping out the concrete around the pool. It’s tiles have been chipping off and it needs to be re-whitecoated now as well, but that happens with age.

We are hoping our next house will already have a pool, or if not, we are purchasing a place we can install one.
