Types of swimming pool demolition
There are two primary methods to remove an inground swimming pool and one basic method for removing above ground pools. Below is a brief explanation of each.
Partial pool removal
This type of demo utilizes heavy machinery to break up the walls of the swimming pool into small pieces and then back-filling the hole with fresh dirt to cover all the debris. The area can then be graded.
A partial pool demolition is a cost-effective approach to ridding your backyard of a pool; however, it may not be the best option if you plan to build any type of structure on that piece of property. Why? Over time the pieces of broken up pool debris below the earth can shift when under heavy loads, and this causes the ground to move with it.
Complete pool demo & removal
Also referred to as a “total” pool demolition, a complete pool removal involves breaking up the pool sides and bottom and removing all the debris from the hole. The debris is hauled away to the appropriate waste disposal facility, and fresh dirt is used to fill in the hole (unless you plan to have a new pool installed).
This is a suitable option for building because it gives you a solid base to work with. It’s the most preferred way to demolish a swimming pool.
Above ground pool removal
Relative to inground swimming pool demolition projects, above ground pool removal is completed quickly and inexpensively. This is due to the fact that it’s a less labor-intensive project. The basic process involves breaking down the pool structure, loading up the pieces of debris and hauling it away. There may be more labor involved for complex projects, such as those with a large deck or patio that needs to go as well.
