The Murray Demolition Process on Pool Demolition/Removal

Once upon a time, you may have loved that pool in your yard.

But now it’s nothing more than a hindrance. You don’t want to keep up with the maintenance and it’s just taking up space that you could use for something else.

You need to get rid of it, but you don’t know where to start.

We offer a pool demolition service that follows a very tight process on pool demolition/removal.

Our Inground Pool Demolition Process

So, what do you get when you rely on Murray Demolition to carry out your inground pool demolition?

We follow the following process on pool demolition/removal jobs.

Step 1 – We visit the site of the pool to examine it and figure out what sort of materials we’re dealing with. These materials affect the methods that we use to demolish the pool. For example, we need to employ different techniques for a vinyl liner pool than we would for a gunite pool.

Step 2 – After carrying out our inspection, we’ll discuss whether you want a complete or partial pool removal. A complete removal requires more work, but it leaves the land ready for you to build something new on. A partial demolition involves burying the debris from the process, which means you have more limits on how you can use the land. However, it’s also the more cost-effective option.

Step 3 – We get to work on breaking up the pool. Firstly, we break down all of the concrete used to create walkways and the general pool surroundings. This is generally the quickest part of the job because it doesn’t require us to mess with the pool’s foundations.

With the surroundings handled, we get to work on the pool’s wall, floor, and foundations. This can often take more time, especially if it’s a complex pool.

This is where things can change based on your pool demolition requirements.


  • If you chose partial demolition, we bury the debris with dirt and re-lay the turf in your garden.
  • If you chose complete demolition, we haul all of the concrete and other materials away so we can get ready to prepare the land for future use.


Step 4 – We only reach this step if you’ve chosen a complete demolition service. Here we’ll get rid of any wooden framing that was used in the construction of the pool. Typically, you only have to worry about this if you have a vinyl or fiberglass-lined pool.

Step 5 – With the debris completely cleared, we fill the hole that the pool leaves behind with dirt. Then, we grade the land to make sure it meets your needs.

The Process on Pool Demolition/Removal for Above Ground Pools

Above ground pools present far less of a challenge than inground pools.

Usually, we need only examine the pool, demolish it, and get rid of the debris. However, we can also help you to repair the site, especially of the pool was placed on grass. Speak to us about site repair to ensure you receive this service.

That’s our pool demolition process in a nutshell. To find out more about how we can help you, contact the Murray Demolition team today.
