Life is so much easier

I have had a partial leg amputation and could no longer use the pool. The pool was over 30 years old and expensive to maintain. Each year started out with a leak. It was time for the pool to go. The company did an excellent job of demolition and landscaping, replacing the fence they had to take down in order to do the job and providing fence posts to replace the old ones.. Chris did an excellent job with the bobcat, tamping down the fill dirt.

No more filling the pool with water and exorbitant water bills!

Mike, the Project Leader of the work, was phenomenal.

Getting your pool removed is traumatic. So many questions and concerns…
I contracted with Remove-A-Pool to remove my 45-year-old in-ground Gunite pool. They were not the cheapest offering but
provided a sense of professionalism I thought was best.
Mike, the Project Leader of the work, was phenomenal. There were considerable challenges in the job process, and he did
great work. He communicated well, said what he was going to do, and then did it. The completed site looks great. I took
pictures throughout the process confirming the fine work.
My children and grandchildren are looking forward to playing in the new yard where the dilapidated pool used to be.
If you are considering removing your pool, I would highly recommend Remove-A-Pool. They probably will not be the lowest
price, but the work they did at my home stands as a reference for a job well done.

Great Job

We had RAP demolish our 30+K gal gunite pool in mid-March 2020. They did everything according to their gunite removal process list in a way that exceeded what our other estimates were providing. The grass is already starting to sprout. Efrain Martinez (foreman) and Juanito Hernandez showed up on time, were very polite, answered our many questions, addressed our concerns and were thorough in all tasks. Highly recommend RAP for this major task. Thanks for caring for our property!

Met & Exceeded My Expectations. FANTASTIC Job!

We have loved our 36,000 oval pool for 25 years. My wife, children, family and friends have many fond (some humorous) memories. But…the liner developed a leak, the brick “apron” around the pool and the coving needed some repair and, well, the “time had come” to part with it. I spent many hours doing due diligence on different companies. I found “Remove a Pool” on the internet, contacted them. Bill came out, did a site visit, answered my many questions with reasonable, honest answers.

The work crew (Bryan and Jordan) were absolutely superb! We talked through details to make sure our understandings were clear, and they were. They “hopped right to it” and, to my amazement, in just shy of 3 work days, it was done! They were extremely respectful and friendly. Oh, and they were understanding of our need for our two dogs to get out a few times each day, made sure the gates were closed, even stopping work to close it if necessary. It was obvious they were well trained and experienced.

My wife and I could not have been more pleased with the outcome! I highly recommend this team!

Outstanding Service

we wanted to reply earlier but we have small children and life happens. Last fall we had the old pool removed that came with our new (older) home. The yard looks like it was never there, the remove a pool stsff was excellent.

What impressed us the most was 9 months later a landscaper showed up to treat our yard saying they were from remove a pool.. free of charge, we never expected that and was such a wonderful surprise!

Can’t say enough about remove a pool!

..see our yard 10 months later!

Highly Recommend Remove a Pool!

I couldn’t be any happier with the work completed by Remove a Pool. My pool had some challenges – tight, limited access to the back yard and we were at the top of a hill surrounded by other homes on all sides. Efrain Martinez, the superintendent and his co-worker kept me appraised every step of the way, letting me know what to expect each day, pointing out questionable areas before they tackled them, and making sure I was satisfied at the end of each day. They worked very hard and completed the job in just 5 days. My 16×32 pool is now gone and I have a beautiful blank canvas of a back yard to create a new outdoor living space. I had solicited 2 other bids for the work, but their professionalism and experience made them the only choice. Great job!

Fantastic Job

Remove-a-pool did a thorough and fantastic job removing our 30,000 gallon gunnite pool. They delivered what they promised, ahead of schedule, regraded our entire backyard, and planted grass seed for our new lawn.

Would only use these guys, and have referred them to friends and clients of mine who have bought a home with an old pool. Love Remove a Pool.

Pool removal

The entire team from Remove a pool was very professional. Don Handy explained the procedure to us very clearly and patiently answered our many questions. The process was exactly as he had told us and the crew tried to minimize the mess and noise as best they could. They needed to remove a portion of our fence to gain access to the pool and it was repaired following the pool demolition as they had told us they would. It is now two weeks since they completed the job and grass is sprouting in what is now our large , pool-less back yard. I would recommend this company to anyone considering having their in-ground pool removed.

We decided to reclaim our backyard!

This summer, my family and I decided to reclaim our backyard and remove our in-ground pool and hot tub, that has gone unopened for many years.

I called Remove A Pool and they met with us immediately, not only to asses my pool, but my yard as well. They made me feel at ease with this daunting task of transforming my backyard. The outcome was amazing!!! Their staff was very professional, friendly and approachable, where as I would find myself engaged in conversations with them not only just about my pool, but about life in general.

During demolition process, they would frequently reassure me that my yard would be put back together because the whole removal process is quite messy, but it was temporary just like they said it would be. They worked very closely with me throughout this process to keep me informed along the way about what was going to happen and how long the project would take.

Upon completion, not only were my expectations were met, they were exceeded and my new yard looks absolutely beautiful!!!

In addition to having my back yard transformed, they were so accommodating, that I was also able to utilize their dumpster to clean a lot of things from my house instead of having to find a truck and go to dump. Also, there was some trees that they removed, which needed to come down.

Because of their diversity and ease to do business with, they saved me lots of additional money and increased my property value, in turn, to cover my investment of removing the pool.

I HIGHLY recommend using Remove A Pool if you have a pool that you want removed from your yard… you will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend these folks!

It’s hard enough buying a house these days, let alone one with a swimming pool that needs to be removed. I called several companies and the only person that got back to me immediately was Don Handy from Remove a Pool. He worked with both the buyers and sellers realtors and kept in contact with me during the entire process of the pool removal.

I spent two days at the new home watching his crew as they worked tirelessly from early morning until late into the evening to get the pool removed. The best part was watching the construction crew save a family of bull frogs that were trapped at the deep end of the pool. The grass that was planted is already growing in place of the pool and the new yard looks great.

I highly recommend these folks. They were easy to work with, and got back to me immediately whenever I had a question or concern.

They have their stuff together :)

We’re happy with the men who came and the end result. Remove A Pool called me back quickly to do the estimate and gave us his paperwork showing his license and I think it was at least 10 references to call. He remembered us every time we spoke on the phone and kept in contact while the job was progressing. When I gave him the down payment, he took a picture of the check and the signed contract and sent it to me.

They came to do the job as soon as the weather cleared and we were next in line. The two guys were able to clearly go over the job with us. I recommend to be home if you can when they first show up, but I know they’d call if we hadn’t been. We were able to point out the plants we wanted them to be careful of (which they were and we really appreciate it!) and they could explain how the plan had changed for where the trucks would come through. Originally we thought they could come through our hilly backyard, but it’s quite hilly. Coming through the front worked out nicely because they seed and straw everything and the machines don’t leave big ruts and piles.

The workmen did a good job. They were courteous and conscientious. I couldn’t believe they really did get the job done in a few days.

S0 glad we have the pool gone and it’s graded so water runs AWAY from the house. Now we have a big open space for play and to have friends over!!!!

They Really Went Above and Beyond!

I had an unusual pool to remove and Remove-a-Pool was the only company up to the challenge.

There were some unexpected things that came up and the removal took longer than they estimated but they didn’t try to change the price, they honored their quote. They were great to work with and handled every surprise with efficiency and professionalism.

They really went above and beyond to make sure I was happy. And I couldn’t be happier, first with their quote and second with the result!

I Highly Recommend Remove-A-Pool!

I am happy we decided to choose Remove-a-pool for the demolition of our in-ground pool.

The company’s owner, Don Handy, worked very closely with me prior to and during the entire process. The demolition crew was friendly, skillful, displayed concern about protecting surrounding property areas and did an outstanding job from demolition to back fill, seeding and covering with straw.

Remove-a-pool actually went above and beyond what they were required to do in order to ensure that we were pleased with the results, and we definitely are! I highly recommend Remove-a-pool.
