We pride ourselves on carrying out our removals to have minimal disruption to your property and surrounds with the use of appropriately sized machinery, load bearing boards and conducting a thorough clean up using a Skid Steer Power Sweeper and manual cleaning upon completion.

​A swimming pool removal can be an inexpensive and permanent solution for an unwanted or deteriorating swimming pool, allowing excess room for new landscaping, subdivision or renovations.

THE FIBREGLASS POOL REMOVAL PROCESS

Click on the icons below for a step by step overview.

Stage one of a Fibreglass Pool Removal involves draining the pool. Dependant on the pool’s strength and proximity to house foundations, walls and fencing, the pool may be braced with Acrow Props. These props not only support the structural integrity of the pool’s fibreglass walls, they also prevent it caving in and destabilising any surrounding footings or structures. If needed, these props will stay in place throughout the removal to allow our team to control the pace of the removal and ensure it is done safely.  ​

​The draining process is usually complete within one hour.

Whilst the pool is draining, access for our machinery is prepared by our team if there is restricted entry. This would include temporarily removing garage doors, gates or fencing and preparation of multi-level areas such as steps for the installation of a temporary ramp. Once the removal or decommission is complete all restriction access points will be reinstated, ramps removed and areas thoroughly cleaned.

If the access way has paving or delicate areas, our team will lay a series of load bearing boards to protect your property from the increased traffic to the area and possible damage or markings from the skid steer.

Once the pool has emptied, our technicians will strategically cut out sections of the pool walls, creating portable sized pieces which are then removed by hand and appropriately discarded by way of our 12-tonne tip truck. ​

​Once all the fibreglass has been removed the pump system will be disconnected and dismantled for either the client to keep or taken for waste. ​

Once the cavity is empty of any debris, the backfill is brought in. This encompasses both our 12-tonne tip truck and skid steer. The cavity is filled and compacted in 300mm lifts until final finish level. Dependant on the future plans for your new area, the final finish level can be left at existing landscape height or lower to allow for new landscaping.

Once the cavity has been filled, all equipment and machinery will be removed and the area will be cleared of any rubbish and debris. The Perth Pool Co team take special care to ensure your drive way, verge and access points are left clean and tidy. ​

​The Senior Technician will then provide information on the completed removal and run through any questions you may have.

This process will typically take one day to complete. ​

Our team ensure safety is paramount throughout the entire removal process, with the use of full Personal Protective Equipment, fully serviced machinery and specialised trade tools.

Concrete Pool Removal and Decommission

Stage one of a Concrete Pool Removal involves draining the pool. The structural composition of concrete allows the pool to be emptied without requiring any bracing.
Dependant on the size of the pool, the draining process is usually complete withing 1 to 2 hours.

Whilst the pool is draining, access for our machinery is then prepared by our team if there is restricted entry. This would include temporarily removing garage doors, gates or fencing and preparation of multi-level areas such as steps for the installation of a temporary ramp. Once the removal or decommission is complete all restriction points will be reinstated, ramps removed and areas cleaned.

If the access way has paving or delicate areas, our team will lay a series of load bearing boards to protect your property from the increased traffic to the area and possible damage or markings from the skid steer.

Complete Removal: Once the pool has emptied, the entire pool shell is meticulously demolished using our specialised machinery equipped with a rock breaker ranging from 3 tonne to 14 tonnes, dependant on the size of the pool and the available access. Once the pool has been reduced to debris, the rubble is removed using a Skid Steer and 12-tonne tip truck.

Decommission: Once the pool is completely drained, a 1 metre by 1 metre hole is installed into the deep end using a demolition saw and jack hammer, this hole allows for drainage once the pool has been backfilled. Each client also has the option to have the top 300mm of the pool edge beam removed. Removing this allows for landscaping and underground, ground work once the removal is complete.

Once the cavity is empty of any debris, the backfill is brought in. This encompasses both our 12-tonne tip truck and skid steer. The cavity is filled and compacted in 300mm lifts until final finish level. Dependant on the future plans for your new area, the final finish level can be left at existing landscape height or lower to allow for new landscaping.

Once the cavity has been filled, all equipment and machinery will be removed and the area will be cleared of any rubbish and debris. The Perth Pool Co team take special care to ensure your drive way, verge and access points are left clean and tidy. ​

​The Senior Technician will then provide information on the completed removal and run through any questions you may have. ​
