    Removing or Filling a Swimming Pool

    After you have your old swimming pool removed, you may think that just filling it with dirt will solve the problem.

    The Swimming Pool Demolition Process

    First and foremost, make sure to call us to let us know about your demo project. We would love for you to send photos of your swimming pool and any other relevant information. This will give us a good foundation for your comprehensive estimate.


    We will need to determine whether a full or partial removal of the pool is needed. Obviously partial pool removals cost much less, since they don't take much time and energy. With a partial removal your also leaving behind materials in the ground that could cause some issues down the road. As for a full pool removal, these are more expensive since the project is much more involved.


    Another thing to consider is the backfill. There are two options to consider, the first is an engineered backfill and the other is a non-engineered backfill. What we mean by backfilling is that we fill up the existing ditch with materials that were removed from the process. An engineered backfill requires that we have an engineer present at the demo project. If the whole pool is being removed, then there would be documentation that takes place. This documentation would be stated to say that you're allowed to build where the pool once was. If a non-engineered backfill was to take, then we would not need an engineer to be present at the demo project.


    When it comes to above ground pools, the removal process is much easier and less complicated. We can just come drain the pool, slice it into sections and take it away. We will make sure to dispose of the pool materials properly.
