When Your Pool Isn’t Worth It
Getting in over your head with a pool is understandable. Most people spend more time on pool maintenance than they actually spend in the water. You can give up the constant maintenance and repair tasks of owning a pool, including frequent testing, buying chemicals, troubleshooting broken pool heaters and buying new safety covers. Just take the pool out of the ground! People in our city are having their pools removed at a greater rate than ever before.
If you’re still on the fence about pool demolition, it might be worth taking stock of the ways that your pool costs you in money and in stress. Consider if these costs are worth it to you:
- Buying test strips and chemicals
- The time spent on maintenance and repairs
- Repairing pumps, heaters, and other pool equipment
- The headache of opening and closing the pool
- Increased insurance costs due to pool liability
- Potentially, the cost of paying for your pool maintenance
- Concern for the safety of children and pets
There are plenty of public pools in Phoenix that offer you the same kind of pool experience as the one at your home for much less cost and hassle. If you don’t feel like a pool membership is really worth the money, then the money to maintain a pool is probably not worth it to you either.
The Best Phoenix Pool Demolition Team
When you just want to rid yourself of the headache of your yearly pool maintenance, the last thing you want is to add more stress. We make it simple with reliable, proper pool removal services. From the initial permit to the final clean-up, we see all Phoenix pool removals through to the end.
How does pool demolition work? We offer two services: partial and complete pool removal. In partial pool removal, we remove enough of the pool to allow your yard to drain properly when we fill the space back up with the proper material (often a specific grade of gravel and clean dirt.) With complete pool removal, we take out all of the pool before we fill the space in with the material.
We can assess your needs and advise you as to which form of pool removal is most likely to work with your future plans for your space. If you just want more grass or a garden, partial removal may work. Those who want to build outdoor kitchens or gazebos may fare better with a complete pool demolition.
Protect Your Health & The Environment
Whether you need some ammunition to help convince your spouse to get rid of the pool, or you’re genuinely wondering if your pool is really a wise choice, the ways that a pool can impact both your health and the environment may surprise you.
- Pool chemicals evaporate and harm local wildlife and good bacteria.
- Overflow from pools contributes to the erosion of local bodies of water.
- Pools waste a great deal of water in our already water-scarce environment.
- Bacteria and viruses can multiply in pools and infect people.
Exposure to chlorine is known to have some negative health effects.
