Inground Pool Removal

  1. Once the swimming pool’s water is drained, holes are made at the bottom of the pool to allow for future drainage.

  2. All concrete and swimming pool materials are demolished into smaller manageable pieces, loaded into a dumpster, and hauled away.

  3. The hole is filled with soil and/or gravel

  4. The area is compacted and graded, which means to smooth the surface so it’s prepped and ready for what you want to do next with the land.

Above Ground Pool Removal

  1. Drain the pool with a pump into the nearest sewer point

  2. Every above ground pool is different, but typically we need to unscrew bolts, sledgehammer the walls and rip them apart.

  3. We will get rid of resulting pool debris for you

  4. Once the pool is gone, there will be a patch of dead grass in its place, or in some cases, a layer of sand or stone.
