Concrete Pool Removal in Silver Spring Maryland

One of the more common calls we get, is a pool owners worst nightmare, and that was just the case with this concrete pool removal in Silver Spring Maryland. This home owner contacted Carroll Bros because they had an old concrete pool that hadn’t been used for a few years. Little did they know the pool had a leak and the whole time it was covered it was slowly losing water. As a result the pool became lighter than the ground water beneath it and the pool popped up out of the ground and out of it’s footing.

The pool had popped out of it’s footing, and when doing so shifted all of the plumbing and forming around it; the home owner was faced with two choices, have the pool fixed which was costly and face the issue of if they would use the pool once fixed OR remove the pool completely and regain their backyard. They went with option B and we got to work, we dug out all the concrete, plastic, plumbing and steel forms of the pool. As you can see below trying to save this pool would have been close to impossible.

Once we got the pool shell out of the way, we went to work on the concrete patio, and then regraded the entire yard. We then filled the hole with dirt, top soil, seed and straw and this home owner went from having an eye sore and unusable pool to a new back yard. Many people don’t know of the importance of keeping your pool full of water to keep it weighed down, or opening the plugs in the bottom of the pool to allow ground water to flow through the pool shell instead of pushing it out of the ground. This homewoner was lucky because they had already been thinking of removing the pool, however we have done work removing newer pools because once the pool floats out of the ground it is hard to fix.
