The average cost of an in-ground pool is just under $22,000. The dimensions and features of the pool affect the overall cost. The type of swimming pool installed also affects the cost.

Another factor that affects the cost of installing an in-ground pool are local regulations regarding the installation of safety fences. In addition to the costs of installing an in-ground pool, consider the costs of maintenance. In addition to daily care to insure that the water is safe for swimming, the parts of in-ground pools occasionally need to be replaced. All of these ongoing expenses factor into the overall cost of an in-ground pool.
