Cost of small inground pools, costs of a semi in ground pool
The cost of a small inground swimming pool depends on two main factors:
The size of the pool, and the material used to build it. As you already know, fiberglass and vinyl are the most affordable. So from there, it comes down to the size of the pool.
The Most Affordable In Ground Pool is a Fully Buried Aquasport 52 Pool
A small pool will always be more affordable than a big pool. That’s a given. But what about the pricing range?
A Semi in ground pool like the Aquasport 52 buried fully in the ground will give you the most bang for your buck of any small in ground pool
Here are cost estimates for each type of pool, ranging from 18-26 foot pools:
Small concrete inground pools
Cost: $32,000 – $40,000
Small fiberglass inground pools
Cost: $28,000 – $36,000 ($19,000 to $29,000 pool store and more)
Small vinyl inground pool
Cost: $14,000 – $22,000

Besides taking up minimal space in your backyard, small inground pools also come with a few other advantages.
Easy and affordable heating
Now imagine that as the difference in water volume between a normal size pool (26+ feet) and a small inground pool.
Having less water to heat means two things:
It takes WAY less time to warm up a small inground pool (faster heating)
And it takes WAY less energy to keep it warm (lower heating bills)
And here’s another benefit. Since you save so much money by choosing a smaller pool, you can easily extend your swim season and put the savings towards a reliable pool heater.
If you swim occasionally and don’t mind sticking to the sunnier days for recreation, a solar heater could be a good choice.
More affordable to run
Having a small inground pool means there’s less water to run through the pump. Less water to heat. And of course, less water to chemically treat.
You put those three facts together, and you get major savings. Savings towards the biggest expenses of pool ownership.
So if you want a pool, but have a tight monthly budget, a small inground pool can be the perfect solution.
Smaller pools cost less to install, less to maintain, and less to care for. Need we say more?
