I think you will discover the best answer to your question is, "It depends...." There are a large number of factors involved in even approximating the cost such as size, construction, additional landscaping or water features, your lot's slope and orientation, and whether or not you use a solar or electric heating system. The best approach will be to do a little research to find reputable pool companies in your area. Ask what types of pool installations and equipment they offer. Analyze your options to find out what you would like and ask a lot of questions. Finally, ask for estimates from three different contractors for options you like best -- and fit your pocketbook.
