“But? You don’t just ‘but’ great ideas, Jennifer,” says Michael.
Jennifer sighs. “How much does a swimming pond cost? That’s the main ‘but’ keeping me from getting as excited as you are. I don’t want to get my hopes up before I know.”
Michael’s shoulders slump sadly. “Yeah, you’re right.” Suddenly, he straightens up. “But there’s no use in giving up before we know for sure! Let’s look it up on Google.” He gets out his phone and starts searching.
Here’s what he finds and shares with Jennifer:
Swim Pond Costs
Smaller swimming ponds can cost between $65,000 and $75,000. Average size ones with some additions are about $100,000 to $120,000. Larger swim ponds with a lot of additions can be $180,000 to $250,000 and higher. Cost changes depending on size and number of additions.
Lower Cost Swim Ponds
For $65,000 to $75,000, you’ll get a swimming pond that’s 10-feet by 15-feet. There’s one big pump working the water flow. Any additions like lights and skimmers will drive up the cost.
The Average Cost For A Swimming Pond
For a swimming pond that’s 15-feet by 30-feet with lights, a skimmer or fountain, and two pumps, you’ll invest about $100,000 to $200,000.
