Swimming Pool Installation Costs

We are often asked about the costs of installation and the truth is that it can vary enormously depending on the kind of the pool that you are buying and where you’re going to have it installed. As a rule, it is cheaper to have a pool installed outdoors due to the costs associated with extending or altering your home so that it can house a swimming pool.

At Compass Pools, we specialise in installing one piece ceramic composite pools but we understand the costs involved and the process of any kind of installation. We are completely convinced of the benefits and advantages of our ceramic pools – they offer superior quality, longevity and durability compared to almost any other type of pool.

Depending on factors including size and the complexity of the installation, a ceramic pool could cost anywhere from around £50,000 to £120,000. For an idea of the kind of costs involved in having a Compass Pool installed at your home, it’s worth talking to a member of our team regarding your needs and requirements. Alternatively, you could visit our showroom in West Sussex where we will be happy to go through it all with you.

If you have more questions about anything related to swimming pool installation, our experienced and friendly team are always happy to offer advice and insight.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the installation process take?

Installing a swimming pool is a complicated process and can depend on a large number of factors such as issues with your property and potential problems encountered during the installation. Compass Pools are typically much faster to install than standard concrete pools as our carbon ceramic composite pools are delivered in one piece to your home and can simply be craned into an excavated hole.

Of course, the groundworks and excavation will also take time. Projects can be completed in between 4 and 6 weeks, but can also take much longer if there are unforeseen problems or delays.

Why should I use Compass Pools?

Compass Pools has years of experience installing pools across the UK. We have contractors throughout the country meaning that will have an experienced specialist local to you who can install the pool for you. We are the only company in the UK that can use our patented carbon ceramic composite pools, so if you are interested in having one built, we would love to work with you.

Do I need to use chemicals in my pool?

Pools need to be kept clean so that they are safe and pleasant to swim in. The majority of pools use chemicals such as chlorine to keep the water clean and clear.

We can provide you with insight and advice on which chemicals are required – Compass Pools require fewer chemicals than standard concrete pools.

And if you would prefer a pool that does not require chemicals at all, we can create a natural swimming pool that utilises a reed bed and filter system to keep the water clean.

Should I apply for planning permission?

In general, you will not require planning permission for a standard outdoor swimming pool. However, there are some instances in which you may need to get permission from your council before we can start work. For example, if your property is listed or is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, planning permission must be sought. Additionally, you would need permission if your pool is going to take up more than half of your garden or if it will be overlooked by a public highway or path.

Can my pool be heated?

Yes, Compass Pools offers high-quality heating systems to heat your pool. Unlike fibreglass one-piece pools, that can become damaged if they are heated above 28°C, our carbon ceramic pools can have their water heated as high as 40°C without any risk of damage.

What our clients say about us…

  • Compass Pools were great throughout the whole process of choosing a pool, ordering it, installing it and tweaking any slight changes since it was finished. It has now been in for a year and I swim every day before breakfast regardless of the weather, snow on the ground etc. We have recently had a pool house finished so I can go straight from the pool into the shower without having to dry first! I would thoroughly recommend Compass Pools for the products they sell and for the service that they provide.

  • There are two aspects to the company, the people and the product. I can't fault either of them. The people are friendly, expert and very helpful. Theirs is a premium product but worth it. The build quality is first rate and the operating system options can give you a package as sophisticated as you wish.
