What is Swimming Pool Removal?
Swimming pools can be very tedious and expensive to maintain. For instance, regular chemical balancing is necessary to keep the water both swimmable and visually acceptable. Costly equipment like pumps, filters, chlorinators/salt generators, and pool sweep cleaners are needed to keep the pool running properly. Due to wear and tear, these pieces can require frequent repairs or even replacements. Swimming pool vinyl liners fade and even tear over time, and plaster can crack and crumble with pressure and age. This can sometimes cost you thousands to even tens of thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs and replacements.
If a swimming pool is being used and enjoyed often, these extensive costs may be worth it. But if you aren’t using your pool often or at all, it can take up money, time, and desirable space. Many homeowners end up letting their pool go by either putting a cover over it or ignoring it altogether. When the equipment is non-operational and the water chemistry is neglected, the water can change colors and collect debris.
Pools that are not properly maintained can become a risk of liability. Most counties have specific codes regarding pool maintenance to ensure environmental safety. Many home insurances and homeowners associations have certain conditions as well to preserve the value of the pool and property. If the shell of the pool is not maintained, it can eventually leak. This can increase your water usage, and possibly result in damages to the surrounding yard or deck area.
Standing water is a perfect breeding environment for mosquitos, which can carry life-threatening viruses like Zika, West Nile, and more. This can be a health risk to you, your family and friends, and your neighbors. Neglected pool water can also grow algaes and bacteries, and can become a home for amphibious or semi-aquatic wildlife.
Having your swimming pool removed can reduce the risk of liability, eliminate the cost of upkeep, and increase your yard space.
How to Remove a Swimming Pool
Swimming pool removal requires permits, and the conditions can vary depending on your area. Groundwater can cause a pool to blow out if the pool is not drained properly by a professional.
