If you're considering removing an old swimming pool, it's important to understand the process involved to ensure a safe and efficient demolition. A professional pool demolition company that works across Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, and the Gold Coast like A-Team Earthmoving can help guide you through the process and ensure that your pool is removed safely and efficiently. If you need a careful inground pool demolition from a team with experience in efficiently removing pools, our professional team is for you.
Although many people want a swimming pool on their Sunshine Coast or Gold Coast property, there are quite a few reasons why it can be better in principle than in practice. For one thing, the upkeep on a swimming pool can be very expensive. For the safest swimming practices for your pool, you’ll need to treat the water regularly, and the cost of this alone can be high. Removal of debris from a pool can also take up much of your time, after which you might not feel like swimming anymore! You may also have limited outdoor space, and if you bought your house with a pool already installed you might even just have other ideas on how to use your outdoor area.
Our Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast customers often ask us about the difference between demolition and removal of a pool. To clarify, demolition means removing only the top half of the pool and burying the resulting debris beneath new compacted fill material, which is suitable for areas where future construction is unlikely or access is limited. On the other hand, pool removal involves completely dismantling the pool and filling the hole with soil or other appropriate fill material, allowing for future construction if desired.
The crucial difference between these two services is that the removal method provides a higher quality subsurface suitable for building, which is important for civil and structural engineers to assess the loading requirements.
This is why, when it comes to which of these services is best for you, it will depend mostly on your intended use for the land where your swimming pool is currently situated. As stated above, if you plan to build in the area, a pool removal service is essential. You won't want rubble and potential cavities of space under your building, nor will design engineers allow this type of risk. On the other hand, if you are hiring a swimming pool removal company in Sunshine Coast to clear space for a garden, then a pool demolition will likely suffice.
Ultimately, the choice is yours to make between a swimming pool demolition or a swimming pool removal. Either way, A-Team Earthmoving has the qualifications and experience to do the job up to your standards, since our company has been completing Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Sunshine Coast pool removals and demolitions on a weekly basis for years now.
If you hire us for a swimming pool demolition, we will organise all of the necessary paperwork to ensure two things: first, we will make sure that our demolitions follow all relevant compliance standards. Secondly, we will double-check to make sure that your swimming pool is removed from council plans.
