Inground pool removal in MD VA
The start of a demolition of a gunite swimming pool in a confining backyard in Vienna VA. We remove swimming pools in MD and VA.

Removal and demolition of in-ground swimming pools is what we specialize in. I was the first contractor to offer swimming pool removal services as an exclusive service in both Maryland and Virginia. Every single in-ground swimming pool that we remove or demolish is owner supervised from start to finish. Having the owner onsite aids in ensuring that everything goes smoothly, and that unforeseen problems are properly addressed and contended with. I find that removing a pool can be stressful for homeowners in the beginning, so contracting with an owner supervised pool removal company helps ease a homeowner’s mind.

Across our wide coverage area, from Frederick, MD, to Bethesda MD, to Fairfax, VA, Leesburg VA, Baltimore County, and beyond – there are multiple types of in-ground swimming pools. Most property owners know what type of swimming pool they have. But, sometimes owners who just purchased their property do not know what type of in-ground swimming pool that have. The types of in-ground swimming pools are: gunite, concrete, fiberglass, and vinyl liner. In terms of demolition, concrete and gunite pools entail the same process to demolish or remove. The swimming pools with vinyl liners, or the fiberglass swimming pools entail a removal process that is entirely different than the gunite / concrete pools, so we need to know what type of pool you have. If you are unsure, we can tell you.

Remove a swimming pool in MD and VA
This gunite swimming pool in a confining work area is getting demolished in it’s entirety and will be completely removed.

We try to steer people away from simply “filling in” the pool as this could potentially lead to problems down the road when it comes time to sell the home. Filling in the pool could cause the area to have the quicksand effect, creating a super saturated bowl, which could prove to be a hazard to the public’s safety (mosquitoes, etc.).

Our process for pricing and executing removal of in-ground swimming pools typically starts with a free telephone discussion about your property and swimming pool. I will then review e-mailed pictures and I will also review online satellite pictures of your property via online GIS mapping websites. I speculate that 97% of the time the online satellite pictures show me enough to put together an accurate quote to remove your swimming pool. If there is heavy tree cover that blocks the view of your backyard or swimming pool – I will come to your property for a site visit and evaluation.

In-ground vinyl lined pool removal in MD & VA
Removal of a vinyl lined swimming pool. The steel structure is being lifted from the cavity to be hauled away from the premises.

Next, I will draft a detailed proposal. The proposal pretty much spells out every move we intend to make on your property. I try to be as descriptive and transparent as possible at all times, from the way I have created the proposals to the way I interact with all my clients. After you review the proposal in it’s entirety, provided you are seriously considering contracting with us – I will then schedule a time to come to your property to meet you in person and to visit the site.

CONCRETE / GUNITE POOLS
Demolition / Removal of In-ground Concrete / Gunite Pools Entails:
  • A section of fencing removed for equipment access.
  • Shrubs may have to be removed for equipment access.
  • Utilities disconnected (performed by others, or we can sub-contract this service)
  • Pool water pumped out/
  • Removal of all pool equipment from site.
  • We do not merely punch holes in the pool’s floor – we go one step further – we destroy the entire bottom.
  • Entire perimeter of concrete / gunite walls are broken down 24-36” from top.
  • Or, we can do a COMPLETE DEMOLITION AND A COMPLETE REMOVAL of the entire concrete / gunite swimming pool structure and haul away all the subsequent rubble.
  • Pool cavity filled with clean fill soil and and compacted with a vibratory double drum roller.
  • Graded to proper elevation
  • Pool areas are graded to drain away from structures.
  • Disturbed areas top dressed with top soil, seeded, and mulched with straw
  • Written watering instructions provided.
  • Fill material and top soil are typically imported via tandem and tri-axle dump trucks, and dumped on a solid paved surface – the driveway. The “dump” area must not have tree branches or overhead utility lines that are subject to damages when the truck’s dump body is fully raised. In most cases it’s a good idea to know what the pool area will be used for, so as to plan for final grading, landscaping, concrete pavers, etc.
VINYL LINED POOLS
If the pool is vinyl lined, the the process usually goes like this:
  • A section of fencing removed for equipment access.

  • Utilities disconnected (performed by others, or we can sub-contract this service)
  • Pool water pumped out
  • Removal of all pool equipment from site.
  • Cut and remove the vinyl liner from the cavity. Vinyl liner is hauled away from the premises and disposed of.
  • We remove the steel structure from the ground. If the vinyl lined swimming pool does not have a steel structure – then we remove the fiberglass, composite, or wood structure from the ground.
  • Concrete decking typically broken to approximately 15″ x 15″ or smaller pieces and placed in pool cavity if allowed, or hauled away if required.
  • Pool cavity filled with clean fill soil and and compacted with a vibratory double drum roller.
  • Graded to proper elevation
