The Actual Pool Ownership Costs

Many pool owners may be unaware of how much time and money they are investing in their pool. The costs of water, energy, and chemicals can quickly escalate. When you factor in insurance and the occasional repair, your pool is likely to cost you thousands of dollars per year.

Not to mention the unseen costs, such as the value of time spent doing something you enjoy instead of maintaining the pool. After all, time is money.

The Environmental Effects of Pool Ownership

A pool may appear to be harmless, but the truth is that it can have a significant environmental impact. Pools consume a lot of water, and the chemicals used to keep them clean can be harmful to the environment. Choosing to remove your pool is a win for Mother Nature as well as for you.

Detailed Pool Removal Procedure

Pool removal entails more than just tearing things down and hauling away the rubble. It's a delicate process that must be handled with care and precision.

Our crew will conduct a thorough site inspection before even picking up a shovel. This isn't a passing glance; we're talking about a thorough examination of the structure of your pool and the soil beneath it.

Following that, we will drain your pool with minimal disruption and then carefully break down your pool with the best equipment. We'll even handle the leftover plumbing and electrical systems, ensuring there are no unpleasant surprises later on.

Cleaning is also meticulous. We will not only remove the debris, but we will also ensure that the empty space is adequately filled and compacted with high-quality soil to prevent future sinkage.

Think Outside the Box: Reimagine Your Backyard

You'll have a blank canvas now that the pool is gone! Your backyard can be anything you want.

The sky's the limit when it comes to creating a vibrant garden full of native plants, a fabulous outdoor entertaining area, or a simple, safe space for your children to play.

Plan it instead of just dreaming about it. We can even provide resources and suggestions to assist you in making your dream a reality!
