Here is a general overview of the expected costs of building swimming pools in the Philippines. The average estimated cost of an eight meter long by four meter wide base pool is around Php 600,000 and the construction cost is around Php 18,750 per square meter.
Here are the size and average cost of entry pools: Olympia, 50-foot course: 164 feet at 300,000 to 500,000 Short 25-meter course: 82 feet to 100,000 to 400,000 Small houses: 40 feet and up to $ 50,000.
The average cost to install an indoor pool is 35,000, with most homeowners spending between 28,000 and 55,000. The additional cost of owning the pool for basic maintenance, additional tools, and repairs is between 2,500 and $ 5,000 per year.
The pool typically costs between 40,000 and 60,000. Let’s say we plan to build a 25x45 (1125 square feet) structure and the average cost per square foot is 100. The structure costs 112,500. A dehumidification system must be installed to protect the structure from moisture damage.
A swimming pool increases the value of your home but is not enough to cover installation costs. On average, the value of your home increases by 5%. So, if you own a 500,000 home, you can expect to get around 25,000 more if you sell it with a pool.
According to some pool experts, the average cost of a 400-foot lazy river in the backyard will be over 600,000. While a simple oval lazy river costs less than 120,000.
A small pool is generally considered to be a pool of 600 square feet or less.
How to build a swimming pool:
Choosing the right pool for you
The average cost to build a gated concrete pool is between 50,000 and 60,000.
Commercial buildings cost an average of PHP 10,626 per square meter. This type of building has a total of 3,828 buildings, accounting for 59.4% of the total non-residential buildings.
According to the study, with a national average of 11.8 cents per kWh, a pool pump alone can add $ 300 per year to your electricity bill. However, Opower’s research has shown that it is not just the pool itself that is responsible for the huge increase in energy consumption in pool houses.
According to Zacks Investment Research, insurance companies generally recommend increasing liability coverage when installing a pool from 100,000 to 500,000. In states where pools aren’t standard, Zacks says, such an increase could add 50 to 75 per year to the homeowner’s premium.
Property Tax Increase
Property prices usually determine swimming pool prices. One of the reasons a pool in your area can be so expensive is because property values are high and can support a higher dollar value spent on property improvements such as a swimming pool.
We recommend having a depth of less than six feet to meet most pool needs. An 18 x 36 foot pool is recommended for a family of six to eight. This should be enough to avoid traffic jams and allow for play, and rectangular pools are best for this size.
