Having a swimming at home and maintaining it can be very expensive. It should take some planning and budgeting if you ever consider having a swimming pool installed at home. But What if you bought a house that came with a swimming pool and you’re not even interested in having one let alone maintain one that you were forced to have?
I’ve actually seen a few houses whose owners were faced with this dilemma. Ive seen people do all sorts of things to their old swimming pools that made me laugh, stare in awe and applaud them for their ingenuity. I saw someone once put a roof over his pool, some small port hole windows and turned the whole thing into his underground den that he called his bunker.
I knew this woman who put some wooden mesh all around the sides of the pool, some greenhouse roofing on to of it and turned it into a greenhouse. A Greenhouse she swears traps in more moisture since its below ground. I even knew a guy once whose son turned their pool into his private skateboard obstacle course. It was all fun and games until someone broke his arm.
I guess the most common and probably the best way to get rid of an old swimming pool is to just get rid of it. Have someone who can provide a swimming pool removal service just come one, demolish your swimming pool and fill it in with dirt. You can have a garden on top of it or pavement to just simply expand your backyard.
