Whether you are doing a partial demolition or a complete pool demolition, pool demolition in Los Angeles is a fairly straightforward process. How straightforward? We’ve condensed swimming pool demolition into five easy steps just to show you how easy it is.
1. Drain the swimming pool
Before demolishing a swimming pool you’ll need to drain it. You can either open the drains and let time and gravity do their job, or pump out the water. Once a pool has been complete drained, you will need to drill an array of holes in the bottom of the pool. Holes will allow the pool to drain properly and constantly once its been filled in.
2. Demolish the Top Two Feet of Concrete
Demolish the top two layers of concrete around the pool and take the pool down to ground level. This is done usually with a Bobcat with a pneumatic drill attached to it. A bobcat can quickly demo a pool and the associated concrete.
3. Fill in the Pool
Once the top to three layers of concrete have been demolished use the demolish concrete as fill and dump it into the bottom of the pool.
4. Top the Concrete Fill with Fill Dirt
Fill in the pool with extra fill dirt, and then grade and compact.
After your former pool site has been compacted, call a landscaper and have sod planted.
