If you’re considering demolition and removal of a swimming pool, Crowder Excavating is here to help!

The demand for pool removals continue to grow as an increasing number of people no longer want to deal with their maintenance and expense. There are many reasons why your pool may have outlived its usefulness:

  • Your pool may be old, outdated or in need of major repair
  • Too expensive to maintain
  • Occupying precious backyard space you may want to use in a better way
  • A safety hazard for your family

Whatever the reason, Crowder Excavating has the experience and expertise to customize a solution to meet your exact needs. Below is a brief description of the two most common methods used in pool removal. We start every project with a free no obligation estimate. Because each project is unique we require a site visit to work out the specific details. We understand that you have a busy schedule. Once we are awarded the project, we take care to prepare all of the permits and paperwork needed from the city or county.


Type I:

Partial Removal This method involves partially collapsing the perimeter of the pool while leaving a portion of the cavity in the ground. The pool is then filled with clean soil and properly compacted. This method is the most common and cost effective.

Type II / III:

Complete Removal This method requires the entire pool be removed before being filled with clean dirt and properly compacted. Many homeowners may prefer this method, but also, many cities may require a complete pool removal as well. We can check with local authorities to determine the exact code requirements for your city. Depending on the heavy equipment used to demolish your pool, damage can be done to landscaping, driveways, septic tanks, sewer connections, etc… Crowder will carefully consider how access to the pool will be gained and what size and type of equipment is best for your particular swimming pool and yard.
