Because these pools are installed rather than built they are more economical than in-ground pools. The most basic above-ground pools, requiring no filtration equipment will cost as little as a few hundred Rand to R20 000. Larger, more elaborate above-ground pools with filtration equipment will cost anything between R35 000 to R45 000, excluding extras like decking, landscaping and accessories.
Design and construction costs generally make in-ground pools more expensive to build. In-ground pools with minimal paving start at around R25 000. More elaborate designs will cost anything between R40 000 to R100 000. The choice of pool design, building materials, patio materials, landscaping, lighting and extra features such as fountains are all cost factors to consider when constructing a pool.

Freeform Pool: A freeform pool is a lagoon style or natural looking pool. It usually has a rock feature and is built to mimic an oasis.
Geometric Pool: Geometric pools usually have straight lines or a consistent radius and are typically more traditional looking. A geometric pool can be more formal and upscale looking.
Lap Pool: Lap pools are typically narrow and long to facilitate exercise and swimming for health and fitness.
Infinity Edge Pool: Infinity edge pools are designed to look like the pool extends all the way out to the horizon.
Perimeter Overflow Pool: This would be a pool where the water level in the pool is the same as the top of the decking around the pool. Around the pool perimeter is a channel that the water drains into creating a visual masterpiece.
Spool: The word spool is a combination of spa and pool. Spools are typically just oversized spas.
