A standard 400 square foot pool with moderate soil and minimum access of 6 feet or more will typically take 1 day or 10 hours from start to finish. Larger pools, rocky soil or limited access will require additional attention and therefore typically take 2 days or more.
So, how long does it take for a pool to be installed?
A vinyl liner pool itself takes about two weeks to install. But the accompanying patio can take from one week to a year, depending on the construction process. A gunite pool takes six to eight weeks from excavation to your first swim.
How much is the average inground pool cost?
The average in-ground swimming pool costs $21,919, according to home improvement site Fixr. And that's for a pretty basic 32' by 16' model. (Eleven years ago, we spent about $24,000 on our pool plus that pavered patio.) But that's just to build the thing.
