If you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, there are loads of things to do and places to see. You might spend an afternoon taking in art at the Dallas Museum of Art or the Nasher Sculpture Center. You could choose to soak up nature at the stunning Dallas Arboretum for a day. Or, you might take a trip to San Antonio for the weekend and enjoy the amazing shops and restaurants along the Riverwalk.
But isn’t it nice sometimes to just stay home and enjoy your own backyard? (Especially when the summer heat and humidity sets in!) Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a staycation with your own beautiful fiberglass inground pool? You can create your own, private backyard oasis by choosing a Thursday Pools fiberglass pool for your family. You’ll get a lifetime of low pool maintenance enjoyment and quality family time.
What’s the average price of a fiberglass pool, installed?
Fiberglass pool prices vary based on the size of pool you want and where you live. You’ll need to contact a Thursday Pools dealer near you to get a quote on your fiberglass pool project. But if you’re just getting started on your research and want a ballpark price for your own fiberglass pool, you can approximate $1500 per linear foot.
Let’s take a look at how that ballpark formula might apply to some Thursday Pools designs.
If you’re after the graceful curves of a freeform pool, our Sun Day design might be the perfect complement to your backyard. It’s available in three sizes with a maximum length of 39’. The smallest size is 30 feet long by 15 feet wide. At an average cost of $1500 per linear foot, a basic installation might run around $45,060.
If you have a large yard and truly want the best of both worlds—both wide-open swim space and lots of built-in spots for relaxing—Aspen is the pool for you. With a built-in, 12-inch deep tanning ledge, you’ll have the perfect perch to sunbathe or watch over the kids while they swim. The Aspen is available in three sizes. Let’s check out the largest, which is 40 feet long by 16 feet wide. Applying our formula of an average cost of $1500 per linear foot, a basic installation would be $60,072.
What about a beach entry?
You can turn your Texas home into instant beachfront property with one of Thursday Pools’ beach entry fiberglass pool designs. They’re the only truly zero entry fiberglass pools on the market. There are two to choose from: Sandal is a curvy, flirty freeform design, and Grace is a classic rectangular design. Beach entry designs will average $1800 per linear foot.
Since we like to “go big or go home” in Texas, let’s take a look at what the largest size of the Grace design might cost. It’s 40 feet long by 16 feet wide. Applying our formula of an average cost of $1800 per linear foot, a basic installation would be $72,000.
What does a basic fiberglass pool installation include?
The definition of a basic installation varies from one pool builder to the next. So it’s crucial to inquire about what’s included (and more importantly, what’s not) as you’re collecting bids on your new fiberglass pool. This will help ensure you’re comparing apples to apples.
For example, some pool builders include as standard: lighting, heaters, a set amount of pool decking, and even an automatic pool cover in all their quotes. Others will price these items ala carte. Additionally, there are costs involved in pool installation that may or may not apply to your project, depending on where you live and how accessible your backyard is. You’ll want to inquire about these costs as you’re interviewing prospective builders.

Texas swimming pool regulations.
Some states, like Alabama, leave swimming pool regulations up to individual counties. The same is true for South Carolina. However, in Texas, state-wide laws apply to residential inground pools.
Here’s what you should know:
Fencing, alarms, automatic pool covers and other barriers-to-entry are not usually part of your pool contract, so it’s a good idea to get fencing estimates ahead of your pool estimates. (Or, check to see if your existing fence meets the requirements.) Your pool builder will be able to advise you on these matters.
Enjoy the benefits of the fiberglass pool lifestyle.
Fiberglass pools create a spot for legendary parties. Texans are known for entertaining and looking for new ways to make a splash. Recently, the world’s first and only fiberglass pools with beach entries (zero entries) and sunken living areas were introduced on the market. So, if you’re a trendsetter who loves to throw a party, you could be among the first to have one of these innovative and unique fiberglass pool designs. Your pool parties will be the talk of the town!
You’ll get the best of both worlds. Fiberglass pools have loads of built-in features like tanning ledges, wrap-around benches and swim-outs that make it so easy to visit and relax. But most fiberglass pool designs also have wonderful, wide-open swim lanes. So, if you’re looking to include swimming exercise in your workout routine, a fiberglass pool with open swim lanes can help you accomplish that goal. Once you’ve experienced the fiberglass pool lifestyle and all the health benefits of swimming, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one.
