After enjoying their pool for many years, our clients were ready to see their pool go. The upkeep and maintenance were too much to handle for how little they had used the pool in the last few years. So they gave MackLand a call to find out about their pool removal options.
This pool is a very common pool type: vinyl liner, vermiculite bottom and fiberglass sides. The vermiculite bottom breaks up very easily and is left in place. The vinyl liner and fiberglass walls are removed and disposed of offsite.
After the walls and surrounding concrete patio were removed, we imported clean, compactable fill material. We compact in layers as we go to help prevent settling. After bringing in topsoil to fine grade, we spread grass seed and finished with straw blanket. Our clients now have a sizable backyard to entertain guests.

Removing a swimming pool is quite a big undertaking and clients like to do their due diligence before selecting a contractor. While chatting with prospective clients, the following are common questions that are asked:
Do you have any examples of other Chiacgoland area pool removal jobs?
We have been in the pool removal business for many years. We have removed many pools in the Chicagoland area, and have many satisfied customers. Take a look at just a few of these here:
We have continually refined our processes in order to do the job as quickly and efficiently as possible. Long gone are the days of the wrecking ball. We are able to minimize collateral damage by using new and improved low impact techniques. Our main tool to achieve this is the compact excavator. We also make sure to do inspections long before we start to ensure that everything runs without a hitch. Additionally we are a complete turnkey solution company with Licensed Landscape Architects, allowing us to not only manage your pool removal but also to leave you with a beautifully landscaped yard afterwards.
How environmentally conscious are you?
Where possible all the concrete associated with the pool removal is completely demolished and processed into 8” fracture concrete gravel similar to PGE and used as fill in the resultant hole. Because we process the concrete associated with the pool into fill material, also called our low impact method, it reduces heavy truck loads of concrete out and then heavy truck loads of fill back in reducing trauma to your property and public roads.
We do not bury fiberglass or steel walls and haul all plastics offsite for disposal.
We receive many pool removal calls from Northbrook, IL and this is an example of another one we completed. After purchasing their house, our clients had focused on renovating the inside. Now their focus is on the backyard. The pool and wood deck had not been used in years and dominated the space. So this did not leave much room for their kids to play safely. They called us to discuss their Northbrook, IL pool removal options and how to best use the space they had in the back yard.
This pool has fiberglass sides and a concrete bottom. Because of the numerous large trees surrounding pool, maintenance was time consuming. Even with an automatic pool cover, you still needed to clean off the leaves.
The client had previously looked into redoing the pool and pool deck but was shocked by the cost. They opted to remove the pool and crumbling wood deck, and restore the area back to lawn with seed and blanket. They now have a great area to play with their kids.
