The number one question that always comes up is. What is the price of a fiberglass pool? Justifiably so, considering this will be one of the single most expensive investments you will make other than your home in your entire life. This is not always the case however. We have had some customers who spent just as much on their outdoor living space as they paid for the house they live in. Not saying by any means this is the root I would personally take, but people just love their backyards. Before I get into answering the question that everyone is dying to find out let’s take a look at some of the factors that will effect the price of a fiberglass pool. But let me first make a comparison to some other investments, but for argument sake let’s call them liabilities, better know as “bad investments”, that we as consumers purchase every day. Let’s focus on upgrades for every day purchases, and how these items effect the pricing…
Let’s dive into these bad investment purchases for a minute, shall we. As I said earlier your home in most cases should be your biggest investment in your lifetime. Your swimming pool, or outdoor living area should, and in most cases be your second largest purchase. Now for the Automobile. Believe me when I tell you this, I’ve lost more money on vehicles over the years to pay for like, umm 3 swimming pool projects, which makes the price of a fiberglass pool seem very affordable, Right! Let’s pull into the car dealership for a minute and discuss ” Options and Upgrades”. We have all been there, done that, and hate every minute of it. Why is this? Because most of us walk into the dealership unprepared, not knowing anything about the car, or total price you are about to spend. What I mean is. You saw the sticker price on that new Cadillac Escalade that said 45,000 so you thought is was a good idea to swing on in and buy one. What you didn’t know is, that price is without the heated seats, upgraded chrome wheels, navigation, Bose sound system, leather interior, as well as all the other goodies. Long story short, you walked out of the dealership spending over 70,000 for the SUV your wife or husband always dreamed of. I know this story all too well. I purchased a 2002 Cadillac Escalade for over 50,000 and today it’s worth only like 8,000. Seriously? And we will be keeping it for like 10 more years, because vehicles unlike swimming pools are flat out bad investments! You get the drift. Let’s talk about how Artistic Pools Corp exposes our pricing right out of the gate!
Over the years, Artistic Pools as well as countless other companies kept pricing a big secret. Why is that? Most high pressure salesman just want to get in front of their clients, period. They think by having the foot in the door is going to close the deal. I am not going to lie. We, just like many other companies got our foot in the door, just to hear in the end, ” we can’t afford the price of a fiberglass pool“. Well, needless to say, we at Artistic Pools Corp changed the way we expose pricing to our potential customers. We spent an entire year developing a program which allows customers to pick their pool model, select as many pool options as they want and get an Instant Quote Online! This program has allowed our company to expose our fiberglass pool cost structure from day one. What does this accomplish? First and foremost, if you flat out can’t afford the price of a fiberglass pool we, as well as you should know this prior to wasting anyone’s valuable time. Maybe you have to wait a year and save up a bit more, but gosh darn it, please don’t buy what we call a “trash bag in the ground” otherwise known as a steel wall or vinyl liner pool. Save up, and come see us next year. Fiberglass Pools are by far your best investment, yes I said investment. Why?

Let’s jump in feet first and discover a basic algorithm for pricing the basic package of a Leisure fiberglass pool, as well as what options will drive the price of your fiberglass pool project. I’m going to break down the price of your basic package first. The cost of your project will cost between $1,000 – $1,400 a foot. Take a standard 23 foot pool and the package price will run you 25,500 on average. Now take a 30 foot pool, that will run you $32,500. A 34 foot pool will run you $34,500. A 40 foot pool will run you $38,500. So using my basic algorithm you should look to spend approximately $1000 per foot on average for a quality fiberglass pool.
