Chicago, IL Pool Removal
Sometimes we get a bit of a surprise once we start a job, this Chicago, IL pool removal was one of those.
As with many of the pool removal jobs that we get called to, one of the reasons for this one was the rising cost of maintenance which were becoming a bit of a burden on the budget. Sadly, there was a second reason as well. The pool owner’s family pet had recently drowned in the pool.
Now for the surprise. When we first did the site inspection for this Chicago Pool Removal it appeared that this was a liner pool with a vermiculite bottom. However once work got underway, we soon discovered that there were more layers. Under the vermiculite, there was also a concrete bottom. Having been in the pool removal business for years, this did not phase us. It did required a small adjustment in our overall approach as it is required that everything be removed.
As with all of our jobs, we take care of the environment to the best of our ability. In this case we installed plywood to protect the access path to the pool and part of the concrete patio that was to remain.
All existing pool water was then pumped out to the curb according to local regulations. Following this all electricity, gas etc. was safely disconnected.
As mentioned above, after using our low impact machinery to break up the concrete, it was removed off site and recycled.
The area was then filled, graded and finished with grass seed and blanket.
No two pool removal jobs are the same. Now and again as with this one, we get thrown the odd curved ball!
