Swimming Pool Removal Companies and Contractors Process

How the pool is removed...

When a swimming pool is removed in the San Antonio and Austin, TX Area it is primarily done one of two ways 1) partial demolition and filled in or 2) completed demolition and removal. 

Both methods are done in different ways but still accomplish your pool removal goal.

DANGER ALERT: remember there is electricity and plumbing connected to your swimming pool which can be dangerous and hazardous to both people and property. A licensed professional should disconnect any service to and from the swimming pool before any physical swimming pool removal or demolition begins. Safety should always be top priority.

Why can't I just fill my pool in with dirt?

Your swimming pool was meant to hold water not work with it like natural earth, the removal and demolition process essentially reverses this when done correctly by a professional. If you simply fill it in with dirt one (or both) of two things are likely to happen 1) it will create a swamp or dangerous mud pit that will never be safe to be on top of or 2) water will eventually get under the swimming pool and cause it to rise or uplift like a boat. 

The swimming pool removal process in a nutshell:

1) Partial Pool Demolition and Fill In:

In this process the swimming pool interior is broken apart approx. 36 inches (3 feet) from the top fully across and many holes a minimum of 3 inches wide are drilled and jack hammered into the bottom of the pool, this will allow for water to flow through the bottom and for the top portion to eventually take back to "natural state". The entire pool exterior above grade or any decking is jack hammered and broken up to be removed fully. The pool is then filled back in using material and a process that will prevent movement or dips, the top layer 3-4" is usually top soil then grass once ready. 

2) Complete Pool Demolition and Removal:

The process is similar to the above except everything is jack hammered and removed completely and filled all the way back in with new fill. This method of swimming pool removal is far more expensive but it leaves no sign of your former pool behind, it is as if it was never there. As you can imagine when removing your pool in this manner there is a lot more hauling off and back fill deliveries along with much longer time needed for heavy jack hammering  and demolition so this method can take up to 2-3X longer to complete.
