6. How much does an in-ground pool cost?

The Blue Lagoons builds high quality pools with a structural lifetime warranty that are constructed with a gunite shell reinforced by steel with durable finishes and reliable equipment.  

A basic pool with equipment set up, will cost approximately $48,000. We also build large pools and can add features such as a spa, water features, tanning ledges, unique lighting and different types of decking.  Your pool designer will review all of these options with you and break down the pricing for each. See our custom pool options here.

7. While the pool is being built, do I need to do anything?

Just be mindful that your backyard is a construction zone for a few weeks’ time while the pool is being built.  Plan on not having use of your backyard during this time. We will continue to be your point of contact and ensure you are updated with what is taking place at all times.  

After the gunite is completed, we will ask you to spray it with water a few times a day for seven days as part of the setting process. Otherwise, sit back and watch until your backyard is transformed into your own personal backyard oasis!
