Partial Pool Removal

Partial pool removal (also known as abandonment) is when only a portion of the swimming pool (the upper portion) is removed, caved in, and buried. This method is not legal in many jurisdictions so make sure you check with your local building department prior to starting your project. Some contractors will not do a partial pool demolition, preferring to use the complete pool removal method instead.
