Swimming pools are great and luxurious facilities that greatly boost the value of a property. You can never go wrong with having a swimming pool on your property as long as space allows it. If you have been desiring to own one but don’t know how much it will cost, you came to the right place. In this post, we will break down the cost of constructing a swimming pool in Kenyan shillings.
Before we go down to the breakdown, it’s important to note down a few things that determine the cost.
What determines cost of constructing a swimming pool in Kenya
The size of the swimming pool is the main determinant of what it costs to construct one. All other aspects remaining constant, the size will determine the cost because of the amount of materials used. The larger the size the more it costs.
Type of pool
There are mainly two types of pools you can decide on. Permanent pools or artificial pools. Permanent pools cannot be moved from one place to another. They are stationary and if you decide to do away with them you have to destroy it. In addition, they have more features and components than artificial ones. They are more user friendly too.
On the other hand, artificial pools are movable and can be transferred from one place to another. They are mostly made of inflatable canvas that can be deflated and folded if need be.
In this case permanent pools cost more than the artificial ones not to mention they are also more durable.
Another determinant of the cost of constructing a swimming pool in Kenyan shillings is materials used. When it comes to materials used to construct the swimming pool, costs vary. Some materials like tiles, pumps etc. vary and which in turn determine the overall cost of the pool. High quality materials and components cost more.
Addons and special features
Here we are talking about things like the design, heaters, covering, changing rooms etc. the more sophisticated and unique the design the more it costs. Also the more special features the pool has the more it costs. Addons like swimming pool heaters if you want to have a heated swimming pool will definitely add to the final cost of the pool.
On ground or underground
This is also another aspect that determines the cost of a constructing a swimming pool in Kenya. Underground swimming pools definitely costs more because you have to factor in cost of excavation, landscaping and other things that are done around the pool to ensure it’s safe to use. However on ground pools might not incur these other additional costs. Their main disadvantage is that they don’t have a good appearance as the underground pools.
