Yes, installing an inground swimming pool can add value to your home that you can recoup when and if you decide to resell your house. Generally speaking, homeowners who opt to put in an inground pool can see a 5% to 8% increase in home value appraisal. How much value a pool adds to your home value depends on a number of factors, from the size and type of pool, to where you live and what features homebuyers in your area are looking for. A pool will likely add value for homes:
- In high-end neighborhoods where a pool is a standard amenity.
- In hot or humid climates where a pool can be used for a good part of the year.
- That showcase outdoor living, with adequate yard space, amenities, and a well-maintained pool.
When you buy your inground pool through Pool Brokers USA, you’ll get it in the ground faster than if you opt for a standard pool contractor – and at lower cost to boot. Most inground pool contractors are booking jobs a year or more in advance, and that’s just the time between your down payment to when they break ground. It’ll be longer still before the job is complete.
With Pool Brokers USA, we can typically deliver your pool within 1 to 6 months, depending on the time of year you reach out to us. Once your pool is delivered, it will take a day for our installation team to mark out the space, dig, set, and backfill. After that, you’re ready for an electrician and a concrete contractor to come and complete their work. So from the time we deliver the pool and put it in that day, you can be swimming in your new pool within approx. 3-4 weeks.
We may be biased, but we believe that if you’re considering it, you should absolutely get a pool. Here are some of the benefits of installing a pool in your backyard:
- Social benefits – Enjoy more quality time with your family and friends. Your loved ones will love coming over to enjoy social time poolside!
- Physical health benefits – A swimming pool is a great way to get a low-impact, full-body workout to keep you physically healthy.
- Mental health benefits – Many pool owners report lower stress levels associated with swimming and spending more time outdoors. After all, some exposure to the sun provides vitamin D and serotonin – just don’t forget your sunscreen!
- Teach your children to swim and enjoy peace of mind knowing they have the skills they need to stay safe.
- Increase your home value – an inground swimming pool not only increases visual appeal of your backyard, it can also increase the value of your home by as much as 5-8%.
- Save money on entertainment when you bring the fun to your own backyard.
All of the pools we offer are constructed of fiberglass, which is highly durable, making it an excellent material choice for longevity. Furthermore, all of our pool shells are handcrafted using our critical point lamination system, delivering the toughest, most durable pools on the market. When you purchase a pool from Pool Brokers USA, you can expect your fiberglass inground pool to last 30 years or more – sometimes even 50+ years.
What’s more, maintaining a fiberglass pool over its lifespan requires relatively minimal upkeep. Unlike a concrete pool that must be resurfaced every 10 years or a vinyl liner pool that will need the vinyl replaced every 7-10 years, a fiberglass pool has low maintenance needs. Fiberglass is also easy to keep clean with minimal chemical treatment because the smooth, non-porous surface deters algae growth.
At Pool Brokers USA, our products are some of the cheapest inground pools you’ll find on the market, with shells starting at $12,500 with as little as $3,000 down.
How do we offer such competitively priced swimming pools? Our innovative factory direct program cuts the price of building a pool about in half compared to a typical contractor. This allows the average American homeowner to afford a pool – which is our company’s mission.
We ship the pool shell directly from the production facility to your home, so you get it sooner and cheaper. We help mark out the space, dig, set, and backfill, and you handle the rest. So if you’re experienced and handy, you may decide to manage the electrical and concrete yourself, or bring on contractors to finish up the installation work.
There are three main types of inground pools: fiberglass, vinyl liner, and concrete. Each of these materials offers different benefits and drawbacks that may impact a homeowner’s decision about what type will be best for their unique situation. In our years of experience, fiberglass inground swimming pools offer the best all around performance for the average American family. Here’s why:

The size pool you should get for your property depends on a number of factors, from the size and orientation of your yard to how you intend to use the pool. Here are some key considerations when choosing what size pool you should get.
- Yard Size – Of course, the main constraint when selecting the size of your pool is how much pool you can fit in your backyard.
- Lifestyle & Intended Use – Do you plan to use the pool mostly solo, or do you have visions of epic block parties in your new backyard? Do you have 4 kids who can’t wait to cannonball into the deep end, or are you a retiree envisioning some light aqua aerobics in the shallow end? Do you want enough space to swim short laps, or do you see yourself mostly using the pool for its tanning ledge?
- Deck or Patio Space – If you know you’ll get a lot of use out of a patio for entertaining guests or for lounging poolside, then you’ll need to reserve some yard space. Consider what patio furniture you’ll need to accommodate, and don’t forget popular outdoor accessories like a grill or fire pit. If you’re unsure how much deck space to allocate, we suggest a deck that’s roughly equal to the pool size.
- Cost – Although size does matter when it comes to the amount of pool space a family needs, a larger pool does not necessarily cost more to maintain than a smaller pool. Especially with the newer and more efficient variable speed pumps and filters. We never hear “our pool is too large”, so if you’re on the fence about pool size, we recommend jumping in with the larger option.
Whether or not building a pool will be worth it is something only you and your family can answer, but in our experience, the families whom we’ve worked with are ultimately very satisfied with their decision to invest in an inground pool.
A pool provides a hub for the family to spend more time together enjoying the outdoors and taking a break from screens and cell phones. It offers an avenue for convenient, low-impact and enjoyable physical activity. A pool can effectively expand your living space to the outdoors, raising the appeal and value of your property. If you’re considering building a pool, that’s a sure sign that it’s worth it for you.
The cost of maintaining a pool depends on a number of factors, including where you live, the type of material your pool is constructed from, how you use your pool, and how large it is. Fiberglass inground pools are relatively inexpensive to maintain because their nonporous finish deters algae growth, requiring fewer chemicals and elbow grease to keep it clean. Additionally, fiberglass does not require regular resurfacing, unlike vinyl and concrete pools. In general, you can expect to pay between $350 and $400 a year maintaining your fiberglass pool. This is significantly cheaper than the cost of maintaining a vinyl or concrete pool, which typically costs over $1000/year.
If you’re concerned about what goes into pool maintenance, you’re in luck. Fiberglass inground swimming pools are relatively low maintenance. Since the pool shell is all one piece, you won’t need to worry about replacing or resurfacing your fiberglass pool. The smooth, nonporous finish will discourage algae growth, so you won’t need to treat your pool with as many chemicals to keep the water looking pristine.
Maintenance Tasks for a Fiberglass Pool:
- Clean your pool with products made for fiberglass – a skimmer is really all you need, but you may opt for a pool vacuum.
- Maintain the water chemistry – You’ll need to regularly check your levels of chlorine, pH, calcium hardness, cyanuric acid (CYA), and alkalinity to ensure your water is in the target ranges. Since fiberglass doesn’t affect the water chemistry, you won’t need to do as much to keep your water chemistry on target.
- Run the pool filter – As a rule of thumb, you’ll want to run one complete filtration per day for a fiberglass pool. You can determine how long you’ll need to run your filter based on your pool size and the filtration rate. All this is programmable for a “set it and forget it” filtration system.
- Keep the water level above the skimmer – This not only helps skim out any leaf, bug, or other debris on the surface of the water, but also helps maintain the proper weight to counterbalance any upward pressure from groundwater.
When you purchase a pool from Pool Brokers USA, you’ll get your new pool installed faster and at lower cost than you would with a traditional pool contractor. Here’s how our process works:
- Request a Quote – Let us know where you need your pool delivered, what size pool you’re interested in, and how many models you’d like quotes for.
- Select Your Pool – Review your quotes, talk to a representative to get the answers to any questions you may have, and select the fiberglass pool model that works best for you and your property.
- Set the Delivery Date – Depending on your selections, location, and the time of year, we’ll set a convenient delivery date for your pool shell and equipment package.
- Our Installation Services – Through our Factory Assist Program, you can save up to $25,000 on installation costs. You’ll decide whether you’d like us to simply deliver the pool, or whether you’d like a Factory Trained Supervisor to be on site for the day to assist you and your helpers to excavate the hole; prepare the bottom; rig, lift, and set the pool; level and brace; set up plumbing; and backfill the pool. This will be completed on delivery day.
- Your Responsibilities – You’ll need to make arrangements for the backfill material, the electrical contractor, the concrete contractor, and the rental of equipment needed on site. We will provide a detailed email upon receiving your Order Form that indicates what type and quantity of backfill material you’ll need, owners manuals and specs for the items included in the equipment package, and the rental equipment you’ll need on site so there will be no guesswork.
We had a great experience this Spring with an “assisted DIY” medium Pamlico pool. CJ and Paul are very helpful with communicating details and answering questions. We had our pool installed for a fraction of what nearby pool companies quoted and everything was completed professionally and with high-quality equipment. CJ is an expert…
Great pool, great service and great price! Very happy!
Awesome pool! CJ and Paul were a pleasure to work with. I was a little apprehensive at first but Paul told me everything would work out and he was right! Everything went exactly as they said it would. CJ is great on install day, once on site I was impressed. Highly recommend these guys!
We saved a ton of money and received a superior pool! This pool is built like a tank and far superior to what local dealers offer. CJ and team are awesome! Fast communication and they accommodated all of the upgrades we requested. Process went without one single hitch. Great job guys. Also, my concrete guy…
