I think you can as long as the yard is level, the concrete is in good condition and thick enough, and you use sand in the bottom of the pool. Consult your local pool shop for advice.

That last answer was not very helpful. Installing an aboveground pool can cost $1,500-$5,000; for in-ground $7,000-$16,000 for a vinyl-lined model, $15,000-$25,000 for a fiberglass shell and $17,000-$45,000 for concrete or gunite. However, custom designs can run prices much higher. source:

Yes,but only if your pool is resin[that is constructed from 100% polymer or plastic]. It is not advisable to use salt in a "steel pool". Salt in a steel pool is a lousy salesman answer. All Chlorine is made from Salt and the amount needed in your pool is insignificant to what kind of pool you have. Any pool can be salt

Is a concrete pool or vinyl pool better to install in New Jersey?

Both are fine. Due to the short season a vinyl liner pool will hold up for many years. The problem with a viyl liner pool is you have to stick to certain set sizes and designs. Small leaks can be patched, or eventually replaced with a new liner. A concrete or gunite pool will last for 25 - 30+ years. They can be constructed in custom designs.

How much does a in ground pool costs?

It depends on a lot of different things - the main two being size (length, width and depth) and materials (concrete, vinyl, fiberglass). Prices also vary by region. That said, the average backyard pool costs somewhere between $25,000 and $50,000 to install via a pool contractor. If you want something big and fancy, it will obviously cost more. If you can do some or all of the work yourself, it could cost significantly less.
