The Cost of Pools in Winnipeg
A new swimming pool is an investment, and we know that you need to understand the cost of pools to plan properly. At Samson Pools we provide all the information you need and break down what you can expect before purchasing. We are one of the only Winnipeg pool companies that has a section dedicated to discussing pricing and what to look for in terms of quality construction.
Inground Swimming Pools
Average Cost (Installed): $65,000+
One of the biggest factors in determining cost will be how large you want the pool to be and the options you’d like to add. Adding options like pool heaters, pool filters, lights, and covers will also influence the price, especially when dealing with higher end items. The better your pool options are, the longer they’ll last and the more efficiently they’ll perform. Investing in high quality options and accessories will save you money in the long term.
One of the more significant costs of building a new pool in Winnipeg comes directly from the materials needed to ensure that your pool can withstand the harsh Winnipeg winters. These costs are an inevitable part of being a homeowner in Winnipeg. By taking the proper precautions and doing it right the first time, you can be sure that your inground pool will last for many years to come. This is also where the benefits of professional installation come in.
A professionally built inground pool in Winnipeg has an average lifespan of over 50 years, with the pool requiring a new liner every 15-20 years. Installation can take between a week and a month depending on the scope of work and complexity of your project, so it’s important that you plan appropriately for labour costs.
Above Ground Swimming Pools
Average Cost (Installed): $12,000+
Above ground pools can offer a great backyard getaway experience at a fraction of the price. They are a cost effective alternative that can rival an inground pool, giving you and your loved ones the perfect place to relax on a hot summer day without the commitment or needed space. When determining the cost of above ground pools in Winnipeg, you’ll need to consider a few important factors.
First, it’s important to choose an above ground pool kit built to last in the Winnipeg climate. You don’t want to invest in a new above ground pool only for it to be destroyed after its first winter. The average above ground pool has a lifespan of anywhere between 15-20 years, depending on the materials used. The highest quality above ground pools will be constructed with resin than metal materials. This results in a longer lifespan as resin materials go a long way towards reducing corrosion and extending the life of your pool. It’s also important to consider things like manufacturer warranties so you can protect your investment and ensure that you’ll be covered if anything goes wrong.
Professional installation is another factor in determining the cost. You’ll want to ensure that your pool is installed on a solid base and not materials like gravel or patio stones, which will result in your pool being subjected to the natural movement of the ground, especially in winter. This can quickly lead to your pool becoming warped or cracked, resulting in a much shorter lifespan. Choosing to go with professional installation means you’ll avoid this right off the bat, as installers know exactly what to look for.
