Assuming this is a totally self-supporting pool that does not require a rigid concrete ring foundation (which could cost additional $1000-2000 or so, rough numbers), this can range from about a 2 hour job for 2 men for a small (up to about 10' diameter) pool to a full day for 3 men for a 30 or 40 foot long pool. Figure about $50/man-hour, so about $200 for a small pool to $1200+ for a large one.

If larger semi-permanent type that requires power for pump/filter system and water pipe run to it, add anywhere from additional $400-1500, depending on how far to run electric and pipes and whether have to tunnel under walks or drives or plantings.

You could get cheaper with plain laborers, but chance of problems later (falling apart, torn liner, plumbing problems, etc) is much higher than if done by a pool contractor, plus would not likely be insured.

If more than a simple do-it-yourself kit type 2-3 foot deep by maybe 10' diameter kiddie pool I would have a professional pool contractor do it.
