Removing The Unused Pool In Your Backyard Is Pricier Than You'd Think
Every pool situation will be different, but regardless of the reason, removing an unused pool can cost between $2,700 and $19,000. The national average is $6,000.
There are full and partial pool removals. Complete removal can increase the estimated cost, ranging from $4,000 to $16,000, with an average of $9,000.
Full pool removal entails removing every trace of the pool, from the cavity filling to cleaning up the entire area. It can take three to seven days.
A partial removal costs between $4,500 to $6,250 because the bottom part would be left intact while the rest of the pool is broken up and left inside. It takes about three days.
Other factors you should consider are labor costs, pool material and size, and the materials used to fill it in. Because the process is extensive, it’s best to contract experts.
