The pool installer price guide shown above covers the majority of pool installations. This guide represents the cost of brand new flat bottom pools only. The total cost can change for pools with existing decks, sloped yards, tree removal and other labor that would complete the work. Pricing for installation of used pools could be a little more because they take longer to build and usually require more attention to make work. There are often missing pieces or parts that need reworking due to age or condition. This means parts are bent, damaged and simply take more time. Pricing for used pools usually adds $50-$100 depending on pool size.
