Although in-ground swimming pools are generally considered assets to a home, there are many reasons for wanting to remove your pool from your property. Maybe your kids have grown up and moved away and it’s no longer fun or feasible to perform the daily and seasonal maintenance necessary to keep your pool running smoothly. Maybe you want to expand your house and the pool is in the way of your new addition, or maybe your pool has aged and you want to replace it with a more attractive, more energy-efficient model. You might just want to have more lawn area. Whatever the reason, removing your swimming pool requires the talents of a professional pool removal specialist.

What’s involved with removing a swimming pool

There are a number of steps to removing your in-ground swimming pool. After obtaining all of the necessary permits and checking for the location of any underground utility or water lines, the pool removal team will drain the pool by drilling into the concrete and allowing the water to seep into the ground surrounding the pool. Next, we break up the concrete and remove the pieces, hauling them away from your property. Finally, we will in the open space with fill dirt and top soil and plant sod atop the former pool area. In just a few weeks after the removal, you won’t be able to tell that there used to be a swimming pool in your yard.
