Have you recently purchase a house with an old pool that hasn’t been opened in years? Has the pool in your backyard seen better days? Is your liner ripped or the plaster cracked? Are you wondering if there is a chance of Bringing Life Back to an Old Pool? Perhaps the time has come to remove it?
Bringing Life Back to an Old Pool – First Steps
The first step with concrete or gunite pools is to drain the water to best assess the situation. Depending on how long it has been sitting, you may need to clear out leaves and other debris as well. With vinyl liner and fiberglass pools, there is some risk involved with draining the pool. Fiberglass pools are lightweight and can move or float without the weight of the water holding it in place. Vinyl liners can shrink and shift.
If you opt to not drain the pool completely and the water is questionably green, time and effort can bring it back to clear. A process of removing all the organic debris, cleaning the sides and bottom, checking the water balance, shocking the pool and filtering the water can bring it back.
Alternatively, you can fill the pool with new water. We recommend using a water truck service. You can fill the pool from your hose but that takes time and with well water, you may be filling the pool with water high in minerals or metals.
Now you move on to the repairs. Concrete or gunite pools can have stains, rough texture, or leaks. All of these should be addressed and repaired prior to resurfacing. The pool will need to be prepped for the new surface, this can be achieved through sand blasting or hydro blasting. Then the pool surface finish material can be installed.
With vinyl liner pools, you may need to install a new liner. You may need new faceplates and gaskets as well.
So, as you can see there are many pros and cons as well as many decisions to be made about Bringing Life Back to an Old Pool. We have been involved in the Denver Pool Removal business for many years. Please contact us for the best advice.

Denver indoor pool demolition
Mack Land LLC is a specialist with in-ground swimming pool demolition and indoor pool conversions. Over the years we have developed a wide range of processes to convert your indoor pool into a usable space. Every indoor pool conversion is unique and custom tailored to our client’s needs.
The first thing we is evaluate the structure. Some indoor pools were additions to the main structure. It is common for there to be problems where addition meets the existing structure and poor architectural integration. We help you evaluate the total project cost so there are no hidden surprises.
The biggest challenge with indoors pools usually is access. Mack Land utilizes specialized equipment that can get fill material in quickly with limited access on residential and commercial properties.
The second challenge is to design a floor to span the pool that is structurally sound and cost effective. Ideally you want to pour an entirely new concrete floor for the entire room. We pay close attention to the condition of the existing pool deck and finished floor elevations of surrounding rooms and doorways. Mack Land can inform you and help you decide between pouring over the existing floor or removing the existing floor and how far to take the sides of the pool down.

The Pool Removal Contractor in the Denver Metro Area and Chicagoland
Pool Demolition and Removal Services
Our clients in Lakewood, CO were ready to get rid of their fiberglass shell pool that had not been used in years and enjoy their backyard. Removing the pool was their first step to creating the backyard they were looking for.
Mack Land, LLC removed the fiberglass shell pool entirely and hauled it offsite for disposal. We removed the concrete walk around the pool as well.
We backfilled with clean material and compacted it in place as we went. Our clients opted for us to leave it at final grade and they plan to take it from here.
Mack Land continues to improve our operation with the latest equipment and processes available. When you are building over a pool, with the price of lumber and other materials today, failure is not an option.
We utilized remote control rock slinger trucks to place the material precisely, reducing labor and exposure to harmful dust and carbon monoxide. Making things heathier and safer for both us and our clients. When filling in an indoor pool, air quality is a concern. Below is a video of the rock slinger truck being backed up to the job by remote.
We consulted with a structural engineer for the best fill material to use to provide a structurally sound floor to support interior load bearing walls that are going to support a second floor. Aggregate with a rock slinger/conveyor truck was used to fill the pool. We were able to send it in through an opening, creating a ramp into the pool to bring the compaction equipment in. This moved the material in quickly, allowing us to focus on compaction. We watered the material in, adding the moisture content to aid in maximum compaction.
This indoor pool removal was more of an indoor room renovation. Filling in the pool was the first step for our clients. They are planning on renovating this space into living area for their kids. After the concrete floor is in place, our client can move on to the next phase of converting this room it a space for their kids.
