How to Decide if a Pool Demolition is Right For You
Having a pool adds a significant amount of beauty to a home. However, keeping a well maintained pool can be expensive, exhausting, and time consuming. Over time the pool may not quite be what it used to be. If you’re pool has reached this point, you might be one of many homeowners who consider a pool demolition. Beyond the pursuit of a good looking yard comes the question of appraisal value. When looking to sell their house, many homeowners will take into consideration the condition of their pool. Our staff polled local Northeast Pennsylvania real estate agents about this question, and the answer practically always began with, “Well, it depends…”. There are so many factors involved with a house appraisal, it’s hard to give a direct answer to whether it’s better to keep or demolish the old pool. It depends on the area you live in, the size of the yard, the condition of the pool, and so on. For example, having a small yard with most of the space taken up by a pool, demolishing the pool would be in your best interest. Or if you live near elementary schools, a pool demolition could increase the value of your house, because the potential buyers, probably homeowners with children, prefer not to have a pool because of the liability involved.
Pool Demolition Benefits:
- Less time and money spent on maintaining your pool
- Increased yard space, giving more room for future landscaping projects
- Pool demolition eliminates the hazards and liabilities of owning a pool
- Can make your home easier to sell by expanding the number of potential buyers

Different Forms of Pool Demolition
When demolishing your pool there are many things to consider. One of the most important, being your plans for the space after the pool is gone. Will you let the grass grow over and expand your backyard? Or do you plan to build onto your house, using the space the pool used to be to increase your square footage. Depending on how you would answer this question you would be looking at either partial or complete pool demolition. Each has their own advantages and price differences. Most importantly, complete pool demolition allows for future construction on the demolition site. Read on below to find out more about these two pool demolition services.
Complete Pool Demolition
A complete pool demolition is usually the type of work that people tend to have in mind when they first decide to have their swimming pool removed. It is exactly as it sounds, the entire pool is demolished. The process starts by using a bobcat machine to break up all of the concrete walls of the pool, then going down and doing the same to the floor. Once all of the material has been loosened it can be removed from the site, leaving a large empty hole where the pool used to be. Our demolition crew will then fill up the area with dirt and base material, and finally use a compactor to keep everything in place. Complete pool demolition is the ideal type of demolition work if you plan to build on the area after the pool is gone. Since every piece of the pool is demolished you are left with a solid foundation which makes it perfect for new construction. If future builds are part of your plan, you will have to choose a complete pool demolition. Partial pool demolition will not work for your situation, and most construction crews will refuse to build on top of an old pool unless it was completely demolished. Some homeowners choose a partial pool demolition and then need the site dug up and recompacted when they decide to build later. Complete pool demolition jobs tend to be a bit more expensive than partial pool demolition due to the amount of work involved, but can save you money in the long run and avoid the hassle of recompacting the site in the future.
Partial Pool Demolition
Partial pool demolition is very similar in practice to complete demolition, with just a few key differences. The tops of the walls are broken down and removed using a bobcat, and holes are punched in the bottom of the pool to prevent any water collection. The concrete floor of the pool is left in place and the whole area is filled with dirt and compacted. Leaving in part of the pool saves a significant amount of time and work, and is therefore a much cheaper way to demolish a pool. The only real drawback to a partial pool demolition is that you will not be able to build on the area in the future. Building on top of partially demolished pools is not an option because the land is deemed “non-buildable”. This is definitely something to consider when choosing which type of pool demolition is right for you. Partial pool demolition is ideal when you are looking to just remove the pool and leave a large open space, like a grass yard, in its place. With the great money saving benefits, we see many homeowners opting for partial pool demolition.

Sal really helped us out. We needed some junk removed right away and he got there within a couple of hours, was very professional and polite and did not charge an arm and a leg. He has a customer for life in us now!
I never leave reviews but Sal (I think his name is) was great. Both times we used them they showed up the next day on time and did a fast and efficient job. Personable and reliable. Highly recommend.
These guys are awesome! They came here when promised, were really nice and friendly, and they did what they were supposed to do in a timely fashion. The price quoted was changed because I had more “stuff” to get rid of. However, they quoted the difference before getting the rest of the things out and we agreed. I will certainly call them next time. Thanks, A+!

Sal and his team are amazing! They came and did a clean out the same day I called. They are honest, flexible, quick, and professional. They are worth every penny they charge. I wouldn't consider calling anyone else.Ryan K.

I got a 100% accurate estimate from the owner and he dispatched a crew to clean out my house the next day (!). The guys were professional and very nice and personable, making a tough situation much easier to handle. Moreover, they worked until the job was done way over my expectations. This company has the best prices in our area and they are complete pros. I would recommend them to anyone...don't hesitate and call A+ first! They will be my first call in the future!

One of the best companies I have ever dealt with. Professional, courteous, reasonable and efficient. Highly recommend.
Sal was great to work with. I was so stressed about a large deck in the back of my house that was collapsing. Sal came right over and gave me a very fair price and two days later the job was done. And a really good job. He even hauled away a piece of junk for me at the last minute. I highly recommend this company and plan to use them again as the need arises
