Most Common Pool Sizes:

Looking to install a new inground or above ground swimming pool? In this brief post I list the most popular pool size in each class, and give you and idea of the cost of each when installed. Not included are the cost of landscaping, electrical, and decking, as each pool design and finish is as unique as the backyard and budget of the customer who wants it.

Quickie Self Promotion: I sell and ship above ground pools all over the country, and sell and install inground pools here in Northern Massachusetts. For a sample of above ground pool packages I offer, Please check my pool packages page.

Above Ground Swimming Pools

These are the most common above ground swimming pools sizes. For excavation and installation always add two feet to the diameter and your new pool will fit well. Not including water and electrical, the installation cost of a 24 round is usually $1000.00, and a 15 x 30 oval around $1800.00

  1. 24 x 52 Round (most popular)
  2. 21 x 52 Round
  3. 15 x 30 x 52 Oval

Inground Swimming Pools

There are three kinds of inground pool. The most popular due to it being the most affordable is vinyl, next is concrete, and slowly gaining ground are fiberglass pools. Average cost of pool kit and installation with excavation of a 16 x 32 rectangle is $17000.00. The average cost of 16 x 32 cement kidney shaped pool with installation is $60,000. 14 x 30 fiberglass pools installed average 30k plus.
