The cost of a big-ticket swimming pool: It could be as little as $15K per night
Posted On July 4, 2021
It may not sound like much, but the cost of purchasing a luxurious pool for a private family’s swimming pool can run up to $15,000.
That’s according to a new study that suggests a pool at your own home could be worth much more than the average price.
According to the researchers, an annual fee for a family pool in the United States of $2,000 could add up to a total of $30,000 per year.
The report, which was commissioned by the California Association of Counties, suggests that if pool maintenance costs are included, a $15-per-night pool can add up over an entire year.
While the cost per day can be higher, the cost to maintain a swimming pool over a decade would be only $4,000, the report says.
In Canada, a pool can be sold for $1,000 to $2.00 a day, according to the Globe and Mail.
In the United Kingdom, a swimming facility can be rented for as little $25 a day.
And in the U.S., the average pool rental fee in 2018 was $5,000 a day according to PoolCare.com, a website that tracks pool rental rates.
That means that a pool rental at your home would cost you $5.25 a night to maintain, the researchers said.
They found that if you bought a pool in your own backyard for $2 million in the mid-2000s, you would pay $1.25 million in annual maintenance costs, which includes maintenance, cleaning, and cleaning supplies.
And even if you rented a pool from a company in your neighborhood, the pool rental would still cost you an extra $5 million annually.
So the cost would have to be at least double the average cost of maintaining a pool over an average year to get the same amount of money back.
For instance, a typical pool rental in Los Angeles, California would cost $4.95 a day to maintain over an 18-month period, the study found.
For a pool costing $2 to $3 million a year, that would be $20 million annually, the research found.
The authors found that for every additional $10,000 you spend on maintenance, you get $1 back, as opposed to the $5 a day for every extra $1 spent.
And for every $5 spent on a pool, you’d get $5 back.
To see how a pool could add on to that $15k annually, consider the cost, according the study.
To purchase a pool and maintain it for $15 per night, the average family pool would cost a family of three $2 per night.
That would include maintenance, pool cleaning, pool rental fees, and water heating, according PoolCare’s research.
So if you had a pool that cost $15 a night, you could spend $1 million a day over 18 months to maintain it, the authors said.
If you rented your pool for $5 per night a year and kept it for 18 months, you still wouldn’t get back $1 of the $15 you paid.
The study also found that a family swimming pool could cost you about $3,400 annually if you keep it for 20 years, compared to $1 in maintenance, a cleaning and a water heating bill.
The researchers also found the average annual cost of cleaning a swimming pools pool could be $10 per hour.
So even if a pool had a $1 a day maintenance cost, the family pool could get you back $8,000 annually, according.
The average annual maintenance cost for a pool is about $1 per year, according for the pool owners association.
So it may not seem like much to have $15 million a night for your swimming pool, but for an average family, that could add more than $20,000 over the next 18 months.
