Swimming Pool, Hot Tub & Sauna Cost Guides

Installing a swimming pool, hot tub or sauna in your home is a luxury that many people want, but few feel they can afford. However there are as many different prices for pool, hot tub and sauna installation as there are types to choose from, so this may be more in your reach than you might think.
For swimming pools, the largest single factor is the size of the pool you want. If your pool is for lap swimming you may need to opt for a larger size, while if it is simply for lounging while reading a good book, you may be able to go a lot smaller. Pool size affects both the cost of labor and materials and so choosing to go with a smaller pool can save a considerable amount of money. The second largest factor is the materials used to build your pools. Pools can be made from many materials from cement to marble, lined with concrete, tiles or vinyl liners, every material you choose will affect the price of your pool.  Continue Reading

The price of hot tubs and saunas will also be largely affected by the size; however the sizes do not vary as extremely as they do for swimming pools. Hot tubs and saunas can also be purchased as prefabricated pieces that are then simply installed rather than built custom for your home (although that is possible if you want something very specific).
For swimming pools, hot tubs and saunas you must also take into consideration the amount your energy bills will increase for both heat and water as part of your overall costs. When talking to an installation professional about your swimming pool, hot tub or sauna, be sure to ask about estimated energy costs so you can get a better picture of the entire price of your new installation.
