Are you wondering how much does a pool and spa combination cost? What are the benefits of installing a spa with the pool? How do you manage the water body and heat your pool and spa? Watch this video and Kate will explain the process and cost of attaching a spa to your new pool.
Swimming pool cost range
Our mid-range pool would cost between $45,000 and $55,000. We do a lot of self-cleaning pools in Melbourne here and they will tend to range between $55,000 to, say, $65,000 for a seven by three meter pool with fairly normal conditions, but without those other things that can affect the price.
Build a spa together with your pool
If you’re thinking of adding a spa to your backyard with your pool, we always recommend doing it with the pool. Now, it doesn’t have to be necessarily right next to the pool if you want to have it in an alfresco area. But what we do recommend is that we have the one filtration system so that you can actually control all the water with one set of equipment and one set of water balance and so forth. We do get a bit of feedback that if you do have it separate, it just requires two separate ownership of water and then having to maintain them all separately. So, by having them connected with the pool, yes it does add to the price of the project, but you will find that looking after the pool and spa will be a lot easier long-term.
Cost of adding a spa
How much does it cost to add a spa to a pool project? It would probably add between $10,000 and $18,000. And once again, I know that’s a huge range. The reason for that is because you can add a water feature so that the water is connected to the spa. You can add automation so that you don’t have to change the filtration from pool mode to spa mode manually. And then you would also need a secondary heating system. So, that’s why the price range is so wide.
