How much does it cost to build a pool?

The most popular pool designs in Australia cost between $55,000 and $65,000. This includes the build and installation of the pool shell, coping tiles, pump, filter and chlorinator on a flat block of land with good access. Additional tiling, fencing and items such as heating are extra costs.

What are standard inclusions when building a pool?

Pool builders generally include these items with all new swimming pool projects.


Pool builders will include an excavation allowance as part of the quoted pool price that covers the equipment, digging and soil removal required. A reasonable excavation allowance is around $5,000.

Heating provisions

Even if you do not initially want pool heating, many pool builders will include heating provisions so you can easily add heating in the future without the need for major works to your swimming pool.

Pool lights

Most pool builders will include at least one blue pool light or one LED light. If you select a higher quality pool builder, they may provide two LED multicolour lights as a standard inclusion.

Coping tiles

Coping tiles are a standard part of every pool build, however pool builders will vary in terms of the type and quality of coping tiles they provide - from concrete at the low end, to travertine and custom drop face at the top end.

Building insurance

All licensed pool builders are required to include the premium for insurance through the relevant State based building authority for all projects over a minimum value, which most pool builds typically exceed.

Pool cleaner

Pool builders will include cleaning equipment for your new pool, however this will vary from a pole and vacuum head to an automated cleaner or robotic cleaner depending on the quality and price of the builder you select.

Harrison's Landscaping

We highly recommend Harrison's Landscaping. We have recently completed our massive back-yard and pool reno with Harrison's, and are exceptionally pleased with the result. Having never before taken on a project of this size, we were naturally very nervous about trusting all of this work to one company, when most other options were a separate pool reno and landscaper. In the end, our experience, the result, and the professional service right from the first day of engagement, was second-to-none, and all of our fears went out the window. Initial consultations with the Sam's showed they were attentive, imaginative, and realistic, not to mention incredibly talented. Once work started, Ben G managed our project (excellent) and the team of Ben F, Scotty and new recruit Dylan were polite, easy to talk to, and nothing was ever too hard for them - not even after the thousand or so buckets of dirt hand-carried to the skip. The end result is unbelievable, the old yard unrecognisable. We went in nervous, and came out knowing we made the right choice.

Canberra Pools

Can’t rate Brad and the team highly enough. We had major issues with our pool and were badly let down by another Canberra supplier. Their support has been excellent, and they are very competitive on price.

Solution Pools

We were so pleased we selected Solution Pools to build our pool. Aaron was great to deal with. He not only has great knowledge of pool construction but is genuinely a nice person which gave us confidence throughout the entire design and build process. Even after handover, he was contacting us to see how everything was going and providing assistance with the testing and chemicals required. We couldn’t be happier with the whole experience and would not hesitate in recommending Solution Pools to anyone.

Outback Pools

We brought a house that came with our first pool. The team at outback pool’s could not have been more helpful. They took time to explain what we had to do and how to do it with genuine concern and did not just sell us lots of stuff. Daniel came to our place and fitted up cost saving pump and offered great advice. Highly recommended.

Zenith Pools Brisbane

Our dream pool came to life with Craig's vision and efficiency. The build was on time, on budget and the end result exceeded our highest expectations!! We highly recommend Craig!

Gary West Pools

If it wasnt for Shane at Gary West pools i wouldnt have a pool. Not having a pool before i left it all up to Shane for design color everything and what i got is the most wonderful veiw from my back windows i never tire of looking at. The whole team that he had working for him were professional and courteous . His after sale service is 100% .My whole Opinion is that if you dont get a pool from Gary West pools your wasting your money

Over the years my Wife and Myself have installed 4 pools using various companies, MFP would be the go to people for all your needs.
