How the pool demolition process works
The first step in removing a pool is going to City Hall and finding out what they require. You will also need to pull a permit for the work. This step is necessary to help abide by local statutes and will benefit you in terms of taxes. Every town has different criteria when it comes to pool removal, and we’ll help guide you in the right direction to ensure all your bases are covered.
If the inground pool is steel or fiberglass, those materials MUST be removed and disposed of properly before backfilling. If your pool is concrete or gunite, you have a couple of options:
- The most costly is to completely remove all the materials and dispose of it. Some towns will require this.
- The more popular option is to crush the concrete/gunite and use it as fill.
The most important step in removing a pool is to properly break up the bottom of the pool to allow the water table to rise and fall naturally. Pieces of debris are to be no bigger than about 12 in. x 12 in. in size for proper settling. If you have concrete or pavers surrounding the pool, that material can be used as fill.
Once the concrete is broken up properly, we use about 15 tons of 3/4″ stone to settle in the larger voids. This will prevent settling. Once the stone is spread properly, The pool is either filled with clean fill or the property is regraded accordingly. During this process, the fill is compacted with a machine. We are so confident with our process we guaranty our work and have in the past put Patios directly on top of a pool we filled. We are proud to say we have not had any issues that we are aware of. We will always stand behind our work, we complete all projects with Screened topsoil and new lawn installation, unless customer requests otherwise.
