    In-Ground pool

    Anyone have an idea what an average sized in ground pool costs? I know the amount you spend depends on a lot of things but what does a basic pool cost?

    My friend spent about $70k on his, but that included the cement deck around it and some landscaping.

    Before you have a heart attack, he had a lot of concrete done and I checked with him the the landscaping they had to do to level the foundation was expensive so I'd say the person who responded $30k is more in the ballpark.

    Re: In-Ground pool

    I work for a landscaping company and am a landscape designer. Depending on what you want to pay for a coping you can expect anywhere from 25k-90k. It really can vary. I've run a couple pool projects from start to finish. PM if you want any more info.

    Just had a couple friends put them in and both were in the 6 figures. Both have sweet setups, so I awsome you can do for cheaper.

    Avoiding concreting your backyard does save money. Fiberglas pools cost more and may ship from texas.
