A pool provide hours of entertainment, but it's also a costly project.
In-ground pools can cost between $20,000 and $70,000, and above-ground pools run between $1,000 and $5,000.
Maintenance is another cost you need to factor in. Regular tasks include vacuuming the pool floor, balancing chemicals and checking the pump. Weekly care can cost around $2,000.
Most above-ground pools built in Lubbock require a permit. For more information about permits, go to the the Building Inspection Department website, here
