Construction Costs: LOW
Swimming Season: LONG

Long Swim Season

It’s not unusual for Utah pool owners to start swimming in May and continue through September, and on particularly hot and dry years (or with the right equipment) the season might even stretch into October. On average the most populous cities in Utah will see 90 degree or higher weather more than 50 times a year, and for a state known for its winters, Utah has a relatively long swim season. Utah pool owners choose to take advantage of the long seasons by building swimming pools with solar heating panels. These panels are intended to do the bulk of the heating in the pre and post season in conjunction with gas or electric pool heaters. This one-two combo will ensure Utah pool owners will be swimming for as long as possible.

How Much Does it Typically Cost to Install an Inground Swimming Pool in Utah?

Construction costs in Utah are actually a little lower than typically found throughout the rest of the country. A quick survey of Utah pool builders in multiple cities came back with prices that start in the $35,000-$45,000 range which is about right for an Inground Swimming Pool in this area of the country. Labor costs are lower than average in Utah, so you can expect to pay less for a concrete structure pool (gunite or shotcrete). These concrete type pools require more man-hours to complete. Permits are usually handled by your local city or county municipality. Having a contractor who is familiar with the area can really cut the time down when it comes to permits. Most professional contractors will handle this process for you and limit the amount of time in permitting.
