How to find a good pool company in Sioux City

iowa skyline

A new pool is a significant purchase, so it's important to take the time to find the right company to build or install it. Sioux City residents should look for pool contractors who specialize in the type of pool they're interested in, whether that’s an above ground, inground or semi-inground design.

Custom design services are available from some pool builders, and many companies also renovate existing pools. Some pool installations require work from licensed contractors, so look up their license before work begins.

Sioux City pool costs

Sioux City residents spend anywhere from $750 to $100,000 for new pools. Where your costs fall in this range depends on a few factors, including:

  • The type of pool
  • Its materials
  • The installation process
  • Any extra features or premium upgrades

Inground pools generally start at $25,000, while above ground pools are much more affordable, averaging around $750 to $5,000. You can also install many above ground pools yourself to save money.

After your new pool is complete, expect to spend between $1,000 and $5,000 per year for ongoing maintenance, repairs, supplies and utilities. Doing your own maintenance and learning to make minor repairs yourself significantly reduces these costs.

Many homeowners also purchase additional accessories for their pool, like outdoor storage, outdoor furniture and decking. These extra costs usually amount to around $5,000.

Sioux City pool regulations and requirements

In Sioux City, there are some requirements for how you install your above ground or inground pool. Your pool installer must take out a permit for the installation, and pools must be enclosed by a fence to help prevent accidental drownings. Also, be sure to confirm that your contractor is licensed in the state of Iowa, if necessary.
