Inground Pool Prices – How it works!
At Splash Pools and Construction, Inc., we specialize in inground gunite (concrete) swimming pools. On our website we have gallery to look at Pools by Price. This is a general starting point for pool pricing, but we cannot give you an accurate price until we meet with you, see your yard and hear what kind of pool you want. We get phone calls all the time asking for general pool pricing and this is very difficult to do because there are so many variables. Asking for pool pricing is similar to asking for a price of a custom home…how custom, what size, etc. Inground pool prices vary greatly, because each pool built by Splash is a custom design.
We Recommend a No Cost In Home Consultation
If you want to dive further into looking at building an inground custom pool, then we recommend a FREE in home consultation where we come to you, look at your yard, discuss pool options and a budget. One of the great things is that we work with great pool financing companies that can help you achieve your pool construction goals. You can apply for these loans online.

Small Pool Designs are a current trend right now!
Small pool designs are great for several reasons….
- Small pool designs fit well in Southern California backyards
- Small pool designs allow for extra space for outdoor living areas or built-in-BBQs
- Small pool designs can cost less – less materials required
- Small pool designs work well for modern pool styles
- Small pool designs require us to get creative with the layout–which is fun for us
Here are two small pool designs that we built for Toll Brothers Model Homes at Baker Ranch.
These pools both have a modern style.
The first pool has black granite tile on the zero edge spa and an overflow edge pool that flows into a rock basin. The pool is built right up against the house and has a raised decorative wall at the back with copper spicket water features.
The second pool is the video is flush with the surrounding decking and zero edge. At the back left, you can barely see the beautiful green wall that accentuates this pool design. Surrounding this pool, you can see there was plenty of room for the built in BBQ and outdoor living area.

Added Swimming Pool Details or Features to Make Your Pool Spectacular!
There are so many different details or features that you can add to your swimming pool. Most people are prepared and know the general style of swimming pool they want and maybe one or two added features, but there are so many options out there! We really can design and build a pool to meet YOUR desires–budget allowing of course.
Here are a few pool details or features from past Splash Pools projects that you could consider for your new swimming pool.
Water features, like deck jets add movement and excitement to your swimming pool design.
The overflow edge is a current trend and gives a modern flair to a more traditional free form style rock pool like this one.
Swim up bar with in-pool seating is both convenient and fun for the entertainers!
Adding a reef step or baja step to your swimming pool is fantastic for young children and adults! Adults enjoy sitting in the shallow water relaxing on the warmer days and this is great for lounge chairs too!
Why settle with one waterfall when you can have three or four? This rock pool has an entire wall of waterfalls to enjoy in this personal oasis backyard.
Just because you have a small pool, doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Adding a feature such as this curved tile wall with water fall adds so much to the design of this pool.

The following are five design trends that we see for swimming pools in 2017.
1. Smaller Pools
We see a trend of smaller pools and more projects that are spa only. People used to want to fit as large of a pool as possible into their backyard, but the 2017 pool design trends to people wanting a smaller pool or spa only with plenty of space for an outdoor living area, outdoor kitchen or other lounging area. This works well with small Southern California backyards where space is already limited. We consider a pool to be smaller if it is less than 600 square feet.
2. Water Features
Water features are still very popular and can be added to a pool or as a separate focal point in the back or front yard. We’ve designed and installed anything from deck jets and waterfalls in pools to stand alone three tiered foundations and large rock water feature walls. The image below is an acrylic sphere rotating water feature sitting in a bed of natural rocks.
3. Fire Features
Fire features with pools and water features are very trendy right now. The technology available for fire features allows us to be able to construct fire feature bowls on pedestals in swimming pool so that they appear to be floating. We can also add fire features surrounding the pool or in addition to a stand alone water feature. If you look back at our blog post about the new pool in Yorba Linda you can see the custom water and fire feature that we built.
4. Acrylic Wall Pools
Raised pools with acrylic walls are definitely a 2017 pool design trend! After building several pools with acrylic walls for Toll Brothers, we have received request after request for a similar design. Acrylic wall pools require coordination with a structural engineer and attention to detail. The 2.5” thick pieces of acrylic must fit perfectly into slots within columns to maintain the structural integrity and prevent leaks. Depending on the layout of the yard, acrylic has been craned over the house for installation because of the weight. The good news is that we know how to do this and have built several acrylic wall pools.
5. Clean Sleek / Modern Look
Modern style pools with a clean sleek look are also a 2017 pool design trend. Most people are choosing straight lines, vanishing or overflow edges and contemporary design elements. The most interesting thing about this trend is that a lot of people with traditional style homes are opting for a modern style backyard and pool–the styles are being mixed together and that is okay! If you have a Tuscan or Spanish style home, it’s okay to add a contemporary style pool.

Yorba Linda Swimming Pool and Landscape Construction
Splash Pools is your swimming pool and landscape construction company for Yorba Linda projects! We are ready to start on your Yorba Linda Swimming Pool and Landscape construction.
Recent Yorba Linda Swimming Pool Project
We recently completed this swimming pool and more in the hills of Yorba Linda. The project was designed by the talented Patrick May Landscape Design and we were able to bring the project to fruition.
When you walk out of the house to the backyard, you first see a beautiful glass tile overflow water feature with a fire feature in the middle. Out from the fire/water feature is a sundial in the decking that was constructed with white cement. Out from the sundial comes the vanishing edge pool, all along a similar radial curve.
The entire backyard design takes advantage of the beautiful view from this Yorba Linda home. The vanishing edge pool sits on caissons (structural posts that go about 20-30 feet down into the ground) and the end of the pool is curved along the edge of the yard. We are able to work with difficult pool sites like this to make your dream a reality. In addition to a vanishing edge pool, there is a vanishing edge spa to the left, separated from the pool. The pool and spa feature glass tiles, pre-cast coping and travertine decking.
Landscape planters with beautiful trees were carefully placed between the travertine decking and you go up a few steps to a nice lounging area.
There is also an exercise spa that is towards the side yard and a large built in BBQ and bar seating area.
We also built a large rock water feature wall at the front driveway of this fabulous Yorba Linda property.

2017 Outdoor Living Areas–Ideas!
Your outdoor living area really becomes an extension of your home when it is designed properly. The trend is sometimes called outdoor rooms or bringing the indoors out––how properly worded that your outdoor space is an extension of your home in both comfort and accessibility.
Having a home with large windows and doors to visually or physically have easy access outdoors is the first step. Next, you want to make sure that your outdoor living area is comfortable with ample seating options and entertainment. We can add fireplace, firepit, TV, relaxing water features, serene landscape and more. Maybe you like to entertain and play a lot games, so comfortable seating with tables would be a great choice. We can design built in seating areas and bar areas for seating. It is also great to add outdoor furniture to your living area. There are beautiful sofas that are made with outdoor fabrics so that you can have very comfortable seating. Don’t forget to have a big and comfortable outdoor dining area!
Your outdoor living area would function best with a covered structure, whether is a wood patio structure, fabric canopy, extension of the house or stand alone structure, we can help!
With the addition of another space to all the spaces that already need to be cleaned and maintained, we can help you make material selections for a low-maintenance outdoor living (to the best of our abilities!).
Splash Pools and Construction will help you design a new Outdoor Living Area that is current with design trends, meets your needs and will function well.
Splash Pools worked closely with Toll Brothers on many of their model home pools (pictured above) that included beautiful and functional outdoor living areas.

We’ve got outdoor kitchen ideas for you!
Outdoor kitchens are very popular right now, especially with our great California weather when we can be outdoors year round. Splash Pools has designed and built many outdoor kitchens and we will work with you to meet your needs.
It’s up to you with what you would like to include in your outdoor kitchen.
Most outdoor living areas and entertaining areas have a nice built in BBQ and mini fridge for easy outdoor cooking and convenient beverage storage. We can also accommodate specialty BBQs or smokers and design a custom built-in.
In addition to the built in BBQ and mini fridge options, the opportunities are endless:
- Outdoor Pizza Oven
- Oven and Stove
- Vent Hood (if needed)
- Full Size Refrigerator
- Outdoor Sink
- Cabinetry for Storage
Your outdoor kitchen will be designed to fit your needs and your lifestyle. We can also add islands, bar height seating areas and more!
Your outdoor kitchen area will need to be under a covered patio area or structure in order to be protected from wind and rain to be usable in all weather conditions.
Picking finish options is the fun stuff! We can help you select cabinet styles and color, countertops (think granite, stained concrete, marble, quartz and more), appliances, and backsplash (if your kitchen is designed with one).
Imagine being able to cook dinner outside while your kids are swimming in the pool and you can keep an eye on them. Even better, you are not limited to just a BBQ grill!

We stand above other Southern California Pool Builders because of our dedication to homeowners, dedication to quality work and dedication to our employees.

As Southern Californian’s we have the greatest weather to enjoy the outdoors year round. Southern California Pool Builders have the unique opportunity to give homeowners a yard that can enjoy year-round—so what do you want in your custom backyard retreat?
Depending on where you live, we can help make your outdoor living area more enjoyable by having it covered and even capable of closing off. Is it really windy where you live, then maybe it would be good to have a outdoor living area that is closed off on all or most sides. We worked with Toll Brothers on this amazing beach pool with an adjacent cabana that has glass walls that open up.
Having an outdoor patio structure is also great to provide shade on those warm summer days. Sometimes you really need a break from the sun! A patio structure is a great way to enjoy being outdoors, while protected from the sun and we can build them adjacent to your pool.
If you live in a hilly area with a great view, we want to help you enhance that view with a vanishing edge pool—like this!
Adding a fireplace makes your backyard more practical for the cooler fall (who are we kidding!) and winter evenings (or mornings!).
When it comes to designing your Southern California pool, there are really endless options. We’d love to come to your house for a FREE estimate and see what your goals are for your project and what ideas you may already have.

We just finished this California Desert Style Pool that we also call the Desert Oasis!
The homeowner had a dream about having a desert oasis backyard with a natural rock pool since they were a child. We helped make that dream a reality and they now have a fabulous California desert style pool.
At Splash, we typically do all of our rockwork in-house, but since we needed a lot of natural rock we had to use an outside company to help procure the natural rock needed. We worked closely with the outside company on natural rock selections, placement and blended it cohesively with the small amount of artificial rock that we designed for this pool. The two rock styles were blended meticulously to really complete a natural California desert style pool for this homeowner.
To take advantage of the hill and amazing view at this house, the pool is a vanishing edge and looks like the edge of a waterfall.
The spa is raised above the pool, next to the waterfall and both have a ton of natural rock. Working with natural rock and trying to get pieces to fit together properly is like working with a giant puzzle.
The landscape surrounding the pool is also in the California desert style with cactus, drought-resistant plants, natural rocks and even some animal skulls. The homeowners added their own outdoor décor that really adds to the style of this desert oasis.
Check out the video testimonial from these great homeowners.
