Mack Land LLC - Long Grove, IL – Pool removal

Long Grove, IL – Pool removal

This Long Grove, IL – Pool removal client had an all concrete in ground pool.

The Problem

Our usual process is to use low impact machinery to break up the entire pool bottom and to then leave of the broken concrete left onsite as structural fill.

For this all concrete pool removal, our client opted to have all the concrete hauled offsite.  To this end, we broke up the concrete and hauled it offsite for recycling.  We then back filled with clean clay fill and topped it off with black dirt that has been screened to keep in only the clean dirt and pulverized to get rid of any large clumps. It has excellent nutrients for plants, trees and shrubs.

Our client opted for sod to finish it off.  We also repaired the stone retaining wall shown on the left.

The Method

One week prior to starting we contacted Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators (JULIE). JULIE provides Illinois excavators and underground utility owners with a continuously improving, one-call message handling and delivery service committed to protecting underground utilities and the safety of people working or living near them.

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.

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 and graded ready for the laying of the sod.
