What Are My Columbus Pool Demolition Options?
Remove A Pool can offer you two pool demolition options: partial and full pool demolition. Most of our customers choose partial demolition because it is quicker and a cheaper way to remove a backyard pool. This process involves removing the side walls and lining but leaving the concrete flooring in place. We then fold the pool back into itself and fill the remaining hole with a mixture of rock and soil.
The other option is a full pool demotion which is the best choice if you plan to expand your home or build another structure over the old location of the pool. Also referred to as exhumation, during this type of pool demo all portions of your old pool are removed including the concrete bottom. All debris is then hauled off and the hole is filled. If you have any questions about which is the best choice, Remove A Pool will gladly discuss your plans for your yard and offer you advice.
