heating, filtering, water treatment and overall maintenance
The surface area of the River
pool is only 8' x 15' (120sqft). This is the most relevant factor in
the calculations of heat loss.
Compare with a 18' x 24' pool size(432sqft). In addition to the other
factors (amount of water, heat loss through the walls, etc.) this means
that (in similar environmental conditions) your cost of heating a
River pool is one fifth to one eight the cost of heating a regular
pool (Click Here to
see heating cost estimates).
Finally, since a
River pool can be put inside, cost savings with respect to an
outside pool are not even in the same order of
magnitude: Ten to twenty times less in heating costs, ten
times less in water treatment and filtering, no dirt accumulated in
the winter, etc.
(*) SITE PREPARATION COSTS (Your responsibility):
- When the River pool is installed inside, you may
not need much preparation, if it's installed in an
existing basement or garage, keeping your overall
costs below $30,000 (Approximate estimate, including
installation, taxes and shipping to locations
reachable within one day drive from North Alabama).
However, if you want to create a special sunroom
for your River pool, then obviously you have to
budget for those costs. The good news is that a new
room with an indoor pool will raise the re-sale
value of your property in proportion to your
- When installed outside, you need to pour a 12' x 24' cement slab
and add a cover for the mechanical area. You may
also want to add insulation and finishing panels (or
other finishing) around the pool.
