Mack Land LLC - Types of Pool Removal

Types of Pool Removal

There are a number of types of pool removal. Here we discuss what they are and what’s involved.

Full In-Ground Pool Removal

In this type of pool removal the pool is completely demolished and removed offsite and the area is restored to lawn. For home owners that may have plans for a home addition or garage in the same area as the pool. No concrete will remain onsite.

Low Impact Pool Removal

All plastics and metals associated with the pool get hauled away and recycled. All concrete associated with the pool is completely demolished and processed into 8 – 10” fracture concrete gravel similar to PGE and used as fill. Pool area is restored to lawn. This method is lower impact and more cost effective because less has to be hauled in and out to fill in the pool.
